The development team in Metia Seattle has been exploring uses for Pivot, a software application from Microsoft Live Labs that let's users interact with large volumes of data.
To bring Pivot to life, the team tipped in all the player stats for all the teams in the World Cup to create World Cup Pivot.
Filter the different criteria through the lefthand column options. Change the view with the top line nav bar. Pivot is made to be simple to shuffle through large volumes of data, trying out different permutations and options to sift for meaning, so have a play here.
We are already building Pivot into a number of external web sites and services for clients who want to give users the ability to get interactive with data. Bearing in mind the way Infographics seem to have taken a grip on the web, it'll be interesting to see Pivot's progress.
My World Cup Pivot insight: Lionel Messi, 30 shots, 0 goals. He might as well be English.
