Abstract: This platform provides a clear visualization of Covid19 impact all over the world using spread data, forecasted data and sentiment analysis.

Full Description: COVID-19 Data Visualization Platform provides a clear visualization of coronavirus impact around the world in both graphical and tabular way. This uses data from a github page ulklc.

This platfrom also allows user to compare the spread of covid-19 in more than two countries at one go in both graphical as well as tabular way. It has the capability of running a sentiment analysis using natural language processing (NLP) of the latest 10,000 tweets on twitter having hashtags of coronavirus and covid19.

Thanks for this, I really like the visualisation; it's particularly great to have a colour-coded world map with tool tips for the total cases. Do you have date information as well? A date slider (i.e. frame=date) would be great for looking at progression over time.

I think the multi-data log scale is a bit confusing as presented. The china example is demonstrative of this: there are a lot more "recovered" cases than "dead" cases, but the opposite seems to be the case as presented in the graph. I'd recommend putting the bars side-by-side as a log scale. Colouring them based on their linear proportion is another option, but demonstrating how that works on a scale is tricky.

Hi @gringer,

Thank you so much for looking into this and your thoughts on the applications.

I will make the necessary changes and suggested by you. I would like to ask one thing, my app is loading slow, could you please suggest something to make it bit loads faster.


Thank you for the submission! I was unable to get to the repo with the code, did it get moved?

Thank you so much for letting me know!!!!

Earlier it was private repository but now I have made that public.

I am updating the app currently so please do not consider this as final version.

Once again Thanks!!!!
