It visualizes the sports clubs and districts in Austria. Each point on the map shows the location of one sports club. The color of each sports club is indicated by the "Marginal children per €1,000." The color of the administrative unit (counting district/district) describes the number of children who are members of a sports club in the respective unit. Whether those are given in total numbers (the number of children who are members of a sports club in the respective district) or relative values (percentage of children) is determined by the slider in the legend.
By default, it shows soccer; a sports type selector on the top allows you to choose other types of sports.
Toggle the legend on the left to find out more about the visualization.
Mouse over a club marker or a district polygon on the map to see the particular number.
