The data visualization is based on winter Sochi Olympics. The initial step involved filtering out the dataset (height, age and sports), within these groups the average heights of males and females were derived.
The data was presented in a simple scatter plotter. The data set shows distribution of age (x axis) and height (y axis) according to different genders: the blue color represents male participants and the red colour represents female participants.
There are numerous interactive circles, when the user clicks on the circles, they can have a better view of the participant, there is a tooltip in each individual circle that gives information on the type of sports each participant was involved in.
Interface and Interaction Modalities:
