TidyX Episode 13: Marble Races & Bump Plots

This week on TidyX, Ellis Hughes and I discuss bump plots built by Cedric Scherer using data on Jelle’s Marbe Race results, provided by TidyTuesday. If you’ve never seen Cedric’s work, he is a great follow on Twitter as he makes some very interesting data visualizations.

We follow up Cedric’s code by building a bump plot of our own using NFL Combine 40yd Sprint Times. We go over different approaches for scraping and organizing the data from both a base R and tidyverse approach.
