NFL Big Data Bowl & Analyzing Tracking Data
Presentation by Thompson Bliss
Analyzing Tracking Data:
Sports tracking data (location-based x/y coordinates of every player and the ball) is a new source of information that allows researchers to perform more complex analyses than they could with traditional sports data. The Big Data Bowl is an NFL data competition designed to spur insights in Next Gen Stats, the league’s player tracking data. This presentation will give background about the Big Data Bowl and how to analyze the NFL tracking data in R.
