Ducen has released its first real-time, interactive dashboard that shares global infection statistics to keep our researchers, public health authorities, and the general public informed with the real-time impact of COVID-19. The dashboard has been powered by Ducen’s end-to-end data science platform called Analance and what makes this dashboard special is its ability to drill down into a country for granularity on the infection statistics across various regions from the dashboard itself.
This is not the first dashboard available out there, but this is our attempt to contribute. Ducen is always looking for opportunities to help the community and with the coronavirus crisis affecting everyone, the team decided to collaborate from their homes to do what they do best and deliver what is important to you.
The team used a variety of visualizations available in the platform to share insights in the most efficient manner. For example, the number cards show the total number of confirmed cases, recovered cases, active cases, and confirmed death cases (total and in the last 24 hours). An area chart shows the trend for the number of new cases reported in the last 7 days. An interactive bubble map shows infected regions visually and can be further drilled down to the region or state. And finally, a pivot chart presents key statistics in a tabular form to easily expand and explore. The dashboard is interactive, so selecting a location in the bubble map, for example, will automatically update statistics across the board.
The dashboard is connected to a live data set aggregated from authoritative sources such as Bing, the World Health Organization (WHO), the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC).
