Four-Dimensional Geospatial Covid-19 Animation

I’ve been trying to figure out the best way to filter out population density from the spread of the Covid-19 coronavirus. It’s difficult, and I realized it’s taken me long enough that it’s been almost a month since I made anything. So I figured out a way to create something while working: generate an animationContinue reading “Four-Dimensional Geospatial Covid-19 Animation”

Covid-19 in Illinois and the U. S.

I am a resident of Illinois (IL), and also the United States (US). Of all the places in the world, these are two of them. I investigated how we in IL are suffering the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic, compared to the national average. Following the assumption that most ICU beds and ventilators are used for hospitalizedContinue reading “Covid-19 in Illinois and the U. S.”

Cases and Fatalities of Covid-19 Coronavirus

Almost everyone I know lives in the United States, so I suppose it makes some sense to dig into some detailed U.S. Covid-19 datasets. The current dataset I’m using comes from Wolfram Alpha’s data repository. It’s my first pass at county-level data in the U.S., and includes first three static maps which show the totalContinue reading “Cases and Fatalities of Covid-19 Coronavirus”

Covid-19 Update July 2, 2020: Case Fatality Rate (CFR)

Per the request of my mother the retired epidemiologist: the Covid-19 CFR by country. This comparison method helps (somewhat) to filter out very large discrepancies due to unequal amounts of testing and/or reporting across nations. Next up: moving averages. Moving-averaged data will further smooth rate changes, and also help to reporting rate effects, i.e. weekendContinue reading “Covid-19 Update July 2, 2020: Case Fatality Rate (CFR)”

Mapping Global Temperatures

*NOTE – Images of Earth not to scale I wanted to develop a streamlined method for plotting the 3D geo-spatial variations over time. I decided that a rotating globe showing temporal variation as it rotates was the best way to go (at least for global data). The primary steps are outlined and explained below, usingContinue reading “Mapping Global Temperatures”
