SportLive — Sport interactive graphics with live results and statistics

SportLive offers visually dynamic animated event guides with advance information about teams and players, followed by live results and statistics that update automatically during the event

EDITABLE: Sportlive guides are interactives created in Adobe Edge Animate, so they can be modified, re-sized and published in a similar way to other interactives. But for Sportlive there are two xml files - one is for the live results feed and one for the background text. The background text can be translated but the live results are provided by an agency so the languages available depend on what can be supplied. | INTERACTIVES |

PROOFING: When you proof a SPORTLIVE graphic on your computer the “data feed” needs to be able to find the graphic. It can’t do this if the graphic is on your computer. Be reassured! It will show when the graphic is published on a webserver, or if placed on a webserver for proofing. | PROOFING INTERACTIVES |

TOURNAMENT GUIDES v EVENT TRACKERS: To avoid overwhelming our website by producing separate graphics for each match or event, “event” IDs may be used. By substituting the match ID in the embed code, the graphic can be “refaced” to focus on a particular event or club. Event IDs can be downloaded, and are presented in a table - visible only after you log in.

PUBLISHING: We recommend using the embed code supplied by Graphic News wherever possible. This is because updates may be necessary at short notice because of factors beyond our control, particularly at the start of the season. By using our embed code your website will always show the latest update of the graphic. | USING EMBED CODE |

MOBILE FRIENDLY: All new Sportlive guides (after July 2015) are responsive, so they can be viewed on both mobile phones and tablets as well as computer screens. This is ideal for fans on the move wanting to monitor progress or to complement watching events live.

APPS: For sports fans who want to follow events, web pages can be very frustrating because they are incremental - being added to all the time. So it can be quite difficult to get back to a tournament guide or tracker. To solve this problem, publishers can make a “web app” available to download from the page showing the graphic. This is essentially a bookmark with an icon that can be downloaded to your home screen. If you click on the icon it takes you back to the linked web page - very useful for anyone following a particular sport event. | APPs for SPORTLIVE |
