This app uses Opta match data from a 2008 Bundesliga game. It loads and processes the XML data and plots the player positions at any given time.

A simple time bar at the bottom allows the viewer to jump to any point in the match. The timer runs from one player contact the next (rather than stepping through the 5400plus seconds in the match). Basic controls allow the progress to be stopped and started, and also allows the viewer to step through approx. 1 minute intervals.

“We must use time as a tool, not as a couch.”John F. Kennedy
