Covid19livespread – data from around the world

“Student [University of Edinburgh – School of Informatics] George Karabassis has created Covid19livespread, a website that presents detailed Covid-19 data and statistics from around the world in one clear, user-friendly place.The central aim of the project is to provide a platform for Covid-19 data that puts the user at the centre, ensuring that it is easy to find the information you are looking for presented in a clear, concise way. In order to achieve this Covid19livespread uses a range of graphs, maps and even an interactive 3D globe to present data collected from Worldometer, Johns Hopkins University and local government websites. The user interface is easy to navigate and fun to use, and the site is also optimised for mobile devices. Another key aim of the project is to gather data from countries all over the world and present it in one place, saving users from searching endlessly online to find the information they want. By providing data of lots of different countries using local government sites, the website also facilitates comparison between these countries, another useful tool for the user. In future George hopes to include both the latest data and historical data for each country, province and region, so that comparison can be made both over time and between countries and more localised areas…”
