Data Visualization Projects

In the Division for Global Surveillance, we run a variety of health-related research projects. We strive to make web-based data visualization and data-interaction for the reader a common part of our knowledge dissemination activities. With web-interfaces and applications, we want to allow the reader to explore and interact with the newest data, in order to get a better understanding of our findings. Perhaps most importantly, we hope to reach and engage a broader audience.

Below are examples of the data visualization projects from the Division of Global Surveillance.

The Mobility and COVID-19 app
The Mobility & COVID-19 app was developed as a data visualization and exploratory tool for Google mobility data and publicly available data collected from Our World in Data. Users can explore the how the occurrence of new cases of COVID-19 and the simultaneous evolution of changes in different types of mobility, with major change-points of mean mobility, mark potentially new stages in COVID-19 evolution. The user can explore rolling correlations of new cases of COVID-19 and mobility over time, and similarities between countries grouped according to new cases of COVID-19.

Clinical AMR and Sewage Sample AMR app
This app was built to determine the association between antimicrobial resistance (AMR) in a clinical setting with that of sewage samples from the Global Sewage Project. Clinical data from the SENTRY Antimicrobial Surveillance Program (a JMI Laboratories surveillance study) was complemented with data collected by the WHO Antimicrobial Resistance Surveillance System (GLASS). From a surveillance perspective, this study emphasizes how AMR characteristics of urban sewage samples is concordant with clinical sample data and how, given their closely relationship, both sources can serve to monitor AMR.

Global Sewage Project app
The Global Sewage Project App is a data visualization tool for the information generated through the Global Sewage Surveillance Project (GSSP) for antimicrobial resistance (AMR). The AMR gene abundances, sampling efforts, the relationship between World Bank variables strongly associated with AMR, and the summary document and data generated by the Project, are available in this data visualization tool.
