The iMEdD Lab’s web application monitors the evolution of the pandemic in Greece and across the globe.
Work stages, sources/processing of data, tools and limitations regarding the development of iMEdD Lab’s web application.
We gathered published data on the course of the infectious disease in our country from every available source and structured open datasets.
The “COVID-19: The spread of the disease in Greece and worldwide” web application was created and is managed by iMEdD Lab. Its purpose is to facilitate the work of the journalistic community and to inform anyone interested in the spread of the pandemic in Greece and around the world.
The application was first launched online on 16 March 2020 and, since then, it is constantly updated with the most recently known information. From its first launch to last November, the application had been regularly updated with various new features and additional analyses. Fully redesigned as it is today, the application was presented on December 2, 2020, when iMEdD Lab launched the version 2.0.
It shows the geographical distribution of confirmed recorded cases in our country and globally, and of COVID-19 fatalities by country in the world map. It also comprehensively presents analyses on the evolution of epidemiologic data in Greece and across the globe, by country.
Any analysis about COVID-19 in Greece is originated from datasets that have been created by iMEdD Lab. Those datasets are open and available to whoever is interested. You may download those datasets and/or read further information in the relevant publication entitled “Open data on coronavirus in Greece“.
The methodology on how we worked to create the application is presented in detail in the relevant publication entitled “How the application monitoring the spread of the disease was created“.
The application is allows users to integrate each view of the map and/or the graphs they wish in their pages. Please read more on possible embeddings here.
