College Football Conferences

Download football.zip Works on Windows and Linux, on Geowalls and regular computers.

One question that often comes up in our discussions is what kind of datasets actually benefit from being viewed on a GeoWall. One example that comes up is 3d graph visualization - after all, chemists have been using stereo visualizations of molecular structures for decades.

But molecules lack a certain mass appeal. Our 3d graph demo therefore has a bunch of college football teams at each node, with the teams' conferences represented by color, and teams that played each other in a certain year (2000) joined by an edge.

This is actually (relatively) serious science, see Dinoj Surendran's site for details of how the points were positioned. (Thanks to Mark Newman for painstakingly compiling the data on who played who in 2000.)
