My name is Ferran Morales and I have been working as a data visualizer at Mundo Deportivo, a century-old sports newspaper based in Barcelona, for 23 years. At the beginning, my work was mainly focused on the paper edition, but over time I have evolved towards a more digital profile. I have learned to use new technologies and have kept up to date with trends in the field of digital journalism.

Project description:

We conducted an analysis of the two best teams in the Premier and La Liga, first we published the special of FC Barcelona and Real Madrid and a month later that of Liverpool and Manchester city.
We made this special to analyze in which moments goals are scored and the importance of them. The big challenge was to prepare the data quickly to obtain this information.

Impact reached:

Feedback from users through comments on the website and social networks has been very positive.

Techniques/technologies used:

Technically we use scrollmagic to control the scroll, adobe suite, Google Sheets, Flourish and Datawrapper.

Context about the project:

One of the biggest difficulties was to prepare the data sheet to capture the time of the goal and the goal difference in all the minutes of the match. Once optimized, we exported the data and processed it with Flourish, an ideal tool to visualize it effectively and quickly.

What can other journalists learn from this project?

In this project, we wanted to demonstrate the in-match dominance of the top two Premier League teams in their matchups against their rivals. During the process of preparing the data, we discovered additional information that allowed us to analyze the topic in greater depth. This allowed us to improve our analysis and understanding of the topic.
