Basic Examples

Retrieve the resource:

In[1]:=
ResourceObject["Australian Rules Football - 2018 Final Team Rankings"]
Out[1]=

Retrieve the default content:

In[2]:=
ResourceData["Australian Rules Football - 2018 Final Team Rankings"]
Out[2]=

Plot team rank against Behinds scored:

In[3]:=
ListPlot[ResourceData[
   "Australian Rules Football - 2018 Final Team Rankings"][
  All, { #Rank, #BF} &]]
Out[3]=

Plot team rank against the ratio of For points and Against points. Emphasis is added (Epilog) to highlight the results of teams rank 1, 5, and 8:

In[4]:=
ListPlot[ResourceData[
   "Australian Rules Football - 2018 Final Team Rankings"][
  All, {#Rank, #ForVSAgainst} &], 
 Epilog -> {Line[{{0, 125}, {18, 125}}]}]
Out[4]=

In this section we will explore fitting a polynomial to the data, graphing the data and fitted polynomial, and then solving the polynomial for a rank position.

Fitting a polynomial:

In[5]:=
parabola = 
 Fit[data = 
   Normal[ResourceData[
      "Australian Rules Football - 2018 Final Team Rankings"][
     All, {#Rank, #ForVSAgainst} &]], {1, x, x^2}, x]
Out[5]=

Graphing the data and fitted polynomial:

In[6]:=
Show[ListPlot[data, PlotStyle -> Red], Plot[{ parabola}, {x, 0, 18}]]
Out[6]=

Solving the polynomial for rank position 5:

In[7]:=
parabola /. x -> 5
Out[7]=
