The COVID Data Browser is a work-in-progress created by the Zeetix LLC team intended for non-commercial use by government officials, researchers, media, and interested people. We welcome opportunities to collaborate with interested parties to extend and enhance this offering.
Several areas of enhancements are anticipated, subject to our extreme resource constraints.
Greatly improved spatial resolution
The COVID Data Browser will be greatly improved by gathering and managing more granular data. For example, data is becoming available at the village, town or city level. The underlying database schema is capable of handling data at virtually any scale, including congressional district, ward, precint, census block, and even real estate parcel (or smaller).
As previously mentioned, a front-end built using React is being developed. Anticipated features include animations of various layers over time, additional interactive display and data visualization capabilities, and integration of a variety of additional data types and sources.
Data analysis tools
This technology stack greatly simplifies the construction of analysis tools that can be applied across large datasets to improve the ability of users to discover, document and share new aspects of already harvested data.
The current data sources (see Sources) aggregate data at the "county" level. Additional data sources may include "point" sources such as individual nursing homes, hospitals, and similar geographic features.
