Continuing our regular roundups of the most interesting charts, maps, and infographics, we are glad to spotlight a bunch of new awesome projects for your inspiration. Today on DataViz Weekly:
- Americans’ annual personal income — Nathan Yau
- Tonga eruption’s true scale — Reuters
- High street crisis in Great Britain — The Financial Times
- Climate change drivers and sufferers — Der Tagesspiegel
We continue to support initiatives addressing the pandemic crisis by providing them with a full-featured free license for any of our data visualization tools. Today we are honored to be among the first to talk about a new project that joined this program, an innovative COVID-19 risk assessment app and framework called Pandemonium where all charts and maps are powered by AnyChart.
Built by Quantum Risk Analytics, Inc., a charitable nonprofit founded by MIT alumni, Pandemonium uses sophisticated machine learning algorithms to more accurately model the disease spread and provide a highly personalized evaluation of infection risks. It’s not yet publicly launched as the developers want to add a few more major features and data sources before the official release. But the app is already in the testing phase that the team encourages anyone to join.
We asked Richard Hamlin, CEO at Quantum Risk Analytics, Inc., to tell us more about Pandemonium, how it works, and how our data visualization solutions are used. Read on to know all the details.
