Similarity of Top Pop Music
Has it ever occurred to you that some popular songs sound more or less the same? Here’s what data and charts say on that. The Pudding published an interesting story about the (further growing) similarity of Billboard hit songs.
NCAA Basketball Shot Charts
Will Schreefer made a cool NCAA basketball shot chart tool that graphically represents data about all the available 2017-2018 season games, which is about 40%. In addition to the court-based visualization showing the location from which all successful attempts and misses of every single one of over 4K players were made, there are tables for a deeper look into player shot statistics. It is also possible to compare the performance of any two players.
