Visualization of the Epidemic (Moocdemic!) - from the first week of case reports, by region.

Visualization of the Epidemic (Moocdemic!) - from the first week of case reports, by region.

Data used in this visualization comes from Penn State's current course on "Epidemics - the Dynamics of Infectious Diseases" and the companion crowdsourced epidemic game - Moocdemic. The dataset was then recoded to create a network visualization in gource.

This video is a visualization of the first week of case reports of the mock epidemic. Regions can are defined by the longer links (look a bit like stems), with shorter, regional stems (the look like petals).

Each time a case report is made the location is linked to the virus (Agent O).
