A little while ago I started working on an interactive data visualisation for the OSS Dart 10K race results. Unfortunately I then became distracted by work, swimming etc and never finished it.
Messing about the other day I grabbed a couple of screen grabs in case there are any other swimming data nerds out there. It shows the distribution of the swimmers at the point the first person crossed the finish line, both for the actual staggered start and a theoretical result if the race had been run as a mass start.
Hopefully I will get some spare time over the next few days (weeks) to finish the interactive version of this.
The Outdoor Swimming Society’s web site is here if anybody is interested in finding out more about them or the Dart 10K.
