91-DIVOC

Let's flip the script on COVID-19 and build fantastic things!

91-DIVOC is home to many data-forward, high-quality, interactive, and informative visualizations made during the global pandemic created by Prof. Wade Fagen-Ulmschneider. I hope you'll spend some time and nerd out on data with me! :)- wade

91-DIVOC-02: "COVID-19 Data for Locations of People You Love"

August 10, 2020 – Cases per Week

Updated the visualization: 91-DIVOC-02: "COVID-19 Data for Locations of People You Love"

In the original release of 91-DIVOC #02: “COVID-19 Data for Locations of People You Love”, the number of new cases were represented by a percentage increase over the past week. As COVID-19 has continued, this one-week metric is less and less relevant and has been replaced with population-normalized statistics to allow a better perspective on COVID-19 in various locations:

August 7, 2020 – State-computed Values for the United States

Updated the visualization: 91-DIVOC-01: "An interactive visualization of the exponential spread of COVID-19"

Johns Hopkins University has always reported the “United States” as part of their list of countries and, in a second dataset, reported the 50 states and US territories as individual locations. The number of confirmed cases and deaths between the “United States” total and the sum of the 50 states’ data has always varied slightly, accounting for the cases is the US territories, cruise ships, repatriation flights, and more. Previous cases of large discrepancies between the data have always been paired with a spike in a single state data where a number of previously unreported cases were reported in a single day.

Recently, the difference between the sums (particularly in the number of deaths) has become significant without a known cause. To help dive deep into this difference, I’ve added a new “Data” value in the graphs of the US states:


August 5, 2020 – YouTube Video

Over the past few months, one of the most common question I was asked was “how did you get started?” or “how was this created?”. Over the past week, I created a video that dives into how 91-DIVOC was created:

This is my first exploration of video, so I’d love your feedback! I believe it should give you some insight in how this visualization is created. :)
