The COVID-19 crisis has spurred data visualization researchers and professionals to apply their expertise to combat the pandemic, designing interactive tools to inform the public and guide decision-makers.
Johns Hopkins University researchers built a dashboard that displays current worldwide country data, with evolving windows that visualize information via clickable tabs.
The New York Times and other publications offer dashboards with animated pandemic information, while Northeastern University's Paul Kahn and Janice Zhang are adding daily updates to an open source database with more than 600 COVID-19 visualizations.
Said Steven Drucker of Microsoft Research, "I don't think there's ever been a moment where data, models, and hence visualization has been thrust so much into the center of everyday life."
