We created this tool using daily data from the New York Times based on reports from local state and health agencies.
We created this tool using daily data from the New York Times based on reports from local state and health agencies. As the conversation around flattening the curve continues, this data visualization illustrates the ebb and flow of COVID-19 confirmed cases and deaths that change day by day, state by state.
We developed this visualization using the streamgraph methodology to show the ebb and flow of the daily data made available. The idea being that you can see the nation as a whole but also have the ability to single out individual states or compare different states while also offering specific daily count data.
This streamgraph shows the growth of COVID-19 confirmed cases and deaths (Y-axis) in every state over time (X-axis) starting on March 7th, when there were 353 confirmed cases in the US and 19 deaths. We utilize color, size and position of the streams to indicate the states rank in volume of reported cases and deaths across the country. Some interactive features include tooltips that provide daily breakdowns of newly reported confirmed cases and deaths, and our Tilegrams map UI that enables state by state comparison.
This is our studio’s latest passion project that will continue to evolve in the coming days and weeks as we rollout new features. Stay tuned!
