Quick Viz – Australian Grand Prix

I seem to have no free time to do anything this week, or next, or the week after, so this is just a another placeholder – a couple of quick views over some of Hamilton’s telemetry from the Australian Grand Prix.

First, a quick Google Earth to check the geodata looks okay – the number labels on the pins show the gear the car is in:

Next, a quick look over the telemetry video (hopefully I’ll have managed to animate this properly for the next race…)

And finally, a Google map shows the locations where the pBrakeF (brake pedal force?) is greater than 10 %.

Oh to have some time to play with this more fully…;-)

PS for alternative views over the data, check out my other F1 telemetry data visualisations.

    1. The Mclaren telemetry includes latitude and longitude information. I paste a dump of this grabbed during the race into a Google spreadsheet, and then pass it through a Yahoo Pipe which can be persuaded to generate a KML output. Pasting the URL of the KML output from the pipe into a Google map search box loads the markers onto a Google Map. (The KML can also be viewed via Google Earth.)

      There’s a related howto here for generating and consuming the KML:

      As far as getting content out of a Google spreadsheet and into a Yahoo Pipe goes, this is a nice demo:

      I will post something more specific after the Easter break…
