Finding the Story in data and Art in the numerical.
Some of these projects were done to answer specific questions, others merely to see what patterns might be found.
Riot-League of Legends Short Story data
I fell in love with Riot's League of Legends Runeterra universe after watching Arcane, their animated TV show set in that universe. I cannot recommend it enough and after watching, I found I wanted to know more about the broader world (outside of Zaun and Piltover.) It came to my delight to find Riot has been publishing short stories set in Runeterra since 2016. I then proceeded to do what any normal, non-hyperfixating human would do, I created a spreadsheet containing all of the short stories to keep track of the ones I had read, as, I remind you, I am normal, and desired to read all of them, yes, all 250+ short stories. I also wanted to track how many were set in the different cities/regions, in what POV the stories are written, the authors, word counts, and which champions were present in the story. I hope others might find this useful or at least interesting. And, if, say, someone aspired to write for Riot, this might provide the parameters for what they choose to publish and the characters who might not have as much representation (and so are ripe for stories.)
Impala North American Regional Studbook
For three years I managed the North American Regional Studbook (Poplink database) for Impala (Aepyceros melampus). Here is the Studbook I generated from that data. This was used to help manage the entire North American population of impalas from institutions that participated in the SSP (Species Survival Plan).
