I am seeing a lot of coronavirus dashboards using plane map views (google maps, mapbox, leaflet) and was inspired to develop an interactive way to visualize Johns Hopkins CSSE and other reliable data regarding the impact of COVID-19 to our world. It's actually based on covidvisualizer.com but decided to make one that doesn't have annoying ads (and open-source).
Here's a short demo:
The interactive globe uses the NovelCovid/API which gets its data from Worldometer's real-time updates and CSSEGISandData/COVID-19's time series. Both of which utilizes reliable sources from around the world.
The GeoJSON used is from https://github.com/nvkelso/natural-earth-vector.
For the polygon colors, I've used D3's sequential color scales. The color starts from a very light orange (low cases) to a red (high cases). Here's a sample:
And lastly, I've used Parcel which is a blazing fast, zero configuration web application bundler to bundle the app.
If you have questions, suggestions, or feedback, please leave it in the comment section.
I hope you all stay safe and sane during these times!
