Abstract: The purpose of this application is to allow easy access and analysis of Covid-19 data for the state of Texas, including subsets by major metropolitan areas, and by individual counties.

Full Description: Data scraped daily from Texas State Department of Health website. App allows display of time progression of data, and various fitting strategies to allow projections into the future. Also show a map colored by number of cases per county, or number per 100,000 population. Finally, a fairly extensive documentation tab explains many of the decisions that were made in the algorithms. This has been an 11 day effort, a testament to the power of shiny and tidyverse to work quickly.
No cloud project because I'm not sure how to do that. I've used cloud very little.
