# NRL Interactive Performance Timeline
- What: A 3D data visualisation of NRL teams across seasons 2015-2022. This was a fun experiment I worked on with Supermarket (opens new window) and was an extension of my Tommy Robotikis project.
- When: 2023
As an exercise in the possibilities 3D brings for data visualisation and interrogation we built a timeline that tracks the performance of all teams in the National Rugby League competition since 2015. The timeline allows users to track their team against others, interrogate the form of their team at every round, filter comparative teams in or out and see the Grand Final winners at the end of each season all in one timeline.
The starting point for this work was a form algorithm based on Google’s page rank algorithm. We plotted that form along one axis of our graph and the team’s streak of wins or losses on the other. Looking down the x-axis brought another dimension to the work - a unique fingerprint of a team’s performance over time, tracking their form and their streak in the same view.
