Posted this on Stars and Stripes, but thought you all may enjoy this here as well. Team data is from wikipedia, odds from skybet, percent chance to advance from an ESPN visualization (links to all in viz).
Use the filters on the upper left to select a group, country, or confederation. This will update the map, odds to win and percent chance to advance. If you select a country in the map, bar chart or table it will take you to a new page showing the team information.
To get back to the map, select the "Group Overview" tab on the top, once back at the map page, deselect the country you chose to reset the view.
Sometimes when the map zooms after selecting a group it will cut off one of the South American teams, if you hold shift and click in the map it will let you drag the map to bring that country into view.
There are a couple formatting things I can't quite work out (like above), but thought this would be an interesting primer for the World Cup!
