Jupiler Pro League - Shot Locations

Hi everyone!

Welcome to the twelfth issue of the Viz of the Week newsletter, where I'll be featuring a new visual each week and sharing the code behind it.

It's been three months since I started this newsletter, and I want to give a special welcome to the 37 new subscribers that joined this week. 🀍

This week I iterated over the shot heatmap I posted a while ago for my striker template visual.

After receiving some suggestions, and using most of the code from my Tiled Shots Maps tutorial, I redesigned the bins that show the areas of the pitch where teams (or players) take their shots.

Here's the result using data from the Jupiler Pro League.

I recently added a new section to the newsletter where I highlight visuals or articles that caught my attention during the week, if you'd like to be featured @ me on Twitter so I can see your work 😊.

An amazing tutorial from Soumyajit on how to create these types of visuals using matplotlib.

Really enjoyed reading the "brief rant" section at the end of the post...don't miss it.

I hope you enjoyed today's post. As always, you're welcome to take a look at my code and reproduce the visual.

All you need to do is check out my GitHub to get access to the notebook and the data behind it.
