    Visualizing March Madness

    Thought I'd share a few nice visualizations I came across today while actually working:

    March Madness story map
    This one shows where each team is based, with a link to where they will play. Basic but informative.

    The Power Rank predictions
    Awesome use of data to drive a visualization. Notice how you can look at any point of the circle and it will change how the data displays - ie who is predicted to win the championship? Or how many people predicted ISU to get to the fourth round (10%)? Just mouse over to get the info

    Re: Visualizing March Madness

    My bad, the predictions are the result of simulations based on rankings, not on who actually picked each team. Still neat.
