Interactive World Map: Player Transfers

Transfer soccer players across the globe is just a normal phenomenon. Here is an interactive map tracks the international migrations of professional soccer players since 1990.

This interactive world map is created by Australian designer Mac Bryla. Map users related data by selecting country and season, and then total transfer fee and number of players will be displayed on the top right corner of the map.


Map Reviews: 3.5/5 Stars

User-friendly interface that users can select category by country and seasons, and the map is created by the rich data-base source that map users can find many data results from the map. Though I expected that there would be extra information when I mouse click the lines or countries.

Though this map is very informative and useful, especially to those Manchester fans, it is not user-friendly enough in following aspects:

  • Cannot pan the map. Though sometimes a hint will be popped up and said we can pan the map by “press, hold, and then pan”, I could never pan the map as I could only draw a rectangle all the time.
  • Lack of a map legend for indicating the meanings of various colored dots.
  • External links, videos or photos can be inserted to the popup boxes for detailed information.
