GIS and World Cup 2022

The geographic information system (GIS) is a system that creates, manages, analyzes, and is employed to map world cup data. GIS connects championship data to a map, integrating location data (players’ country, club) and all types of descriptive information (players’ age). GIS helps users understand patterns, relationships, and geographic context. The benefits include improved communication and efficiency as well as better management and decision-making.

ArcGIS Dashboards and World Cup

This can be tailored to World Cup activity, giving the viewers ability to slice the data to get the answers needed. Dashboards are essential information products, like maps and apps, providing a critical component to geospatial infrastructure. In other words, Esri’s dashboard is an important platform that integrates into one place maps, statistics, and information for all participants in the Qatar world cup competition.

Data Visualization of World Cup 2022 Players

The ArcGIS dashboard illustrates that most players in the championship (158 players or 19.04% of all) play for clubs in England, which is almost twice as many as the representatives of the second country (Spain) in the ranking according to this criterion. For Senegal, none of the players in the squad play for a club in their home country, while all of the host nation’s internationals compete for Qatari clubs.
