Researchers create dashboard on spatiality of COVID-19 in India
An international team of researchers create a dynamic dashboard on the spatiality of Covid-19 in India, modelling its future growth based on different scenarios.
Solent University researcher, Dr Komali Kantamaneni is part of an international team that have created a dynamic dashboard on the spatiality of Covid-19 in India, and modelled its future growth based on different scenarios.
The dashboard provides Covid-19 in India statistics, including past and current cases by district, cause, date, age and hospital, also shows future growth modelled on different future scenarios and conditions. It was collated from various sources, including Covid-19 in India, Dataset on Novel Corona Virus Disease 2019 in India: Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Government of India and Times of India Daily Newspaper.
The team of academics - which also includes Dr Komali Yenneti from the University of Wolverhampton, Salghuna Nair and Tarun Konraju from the International Institute of Technology in Hyderabad, and Aravind Sridharan from Pondicherry University - hope the research will help governments and policy-makers to see current and future trends of the coronavirus in the second most populated country in the world.
"We believe we are the first group of people who have created this type of work using a complex set of different interrelated information in an easily accessible format," says Dr Kantamaneni.
“There are few dashboards that have been created regarding Covid-19 in India, but none of them have provided the spatial temporality of the information. Furthermore, to the best of our knowledge, there is no public dashboard or analysis on the future predictions of Covid-19 situations in India, especially in different scenarios," she continues.
“We are hoping to keep working on the dashboard, and to collaborate with researchers from all over the world,” she adds.
