Secondary Data Analysis and Curation: A Presentation at #IACSS2011

Last week I had an opportunity to make an oral presentation at the Eighth International Symposium of Computer Science in Sport in Shanghai.

I was keen to explore the potential of secondary data analysis that draws upon the increasingly rich data provided by websites supporting sporting events.

I used data drawn from the 2011 Asia Football Cup to discuss issues around the creation and curation of content. I noted some of the responsibilities associated with produsing web based resources.

This is a brief SlideCast of my presentation.

Asia Cup Matchcasts use a 0-90 minute running clock for goal times. I have used these times to allocate the goals scored into four quarters of the Knockout games (notionally 0-22, 23-45 (end of first half), 46-68, 69-90 (end of second half)). Extra Time is played in Knockout games if the game is tied at the end of the normal time (90 minutes). There are two halves of fifteen minutes of extra time (91-105, 106-120).
