Inspiration

Covid-19 has affected many people worldwide especially the United States. I wanted to focus on creating a cool and interesting dashboard to be able to easily visualize the trends on Covid-19. I used Tableau due to its dynamic visuals and its ease.

What it does

Using this dashboard you can use the widget to change to visualize a specific date and see how the points of confirmed cases of coronavirus is on the map.Below on the left it shows the number of cases per state on that day and on the right it shows the overall trend of confirmed cases.

How I built it

I used the covid-19 dataset from New York Times which is updated each day:
https://github.com/nytimes/covid-19-data
Then used tableau to visualize each portion of the dashboard.

Challenges I ran into

It was the first time I used Tableau and it was a little difficult to understand all of its functionalities in such a short period of time.

What I learned

I learned to understand some of Tableau's interesting functionalities and how data visualization can help understand the viewer easily conceptualize an idea.
