In a polarized time where opinions clash and uncertainty arises, civilians and governments are having difficulties trusting one another as they perceive policies to solely benefit one or the other which causes misinformation and distrust. Evident during the COVID-19 pandemic, increasing numbers of protests were occurring globally as a response to health and safety regulations such as mask mandates, stay-at-home orders, and public information campaigns; countries such as the United States, Brazil, and South Korea implemented varying levels of restrictions which in turn caused varying pandemic outcomes and ways of life for citizens from each country.
What it does
The site visualizes the data between the three countries based on the categories listed above: mask mandates, stay-at-home orders, public information campaigns, and pandemic protests. We hope our project allows users to understand the effectiveness of non-medical policies, each country’s approaches to tackling the pandemic, and how they can contribute to alleviating the pandemic.
How we built it
We first used Python to extract data from CSV files, then converted that data into a visual graph using pyecharts. Using leaflet, we created an interactive then displayed it on each webpage, alongside some brief information regarding the countries current status. We then included the graphs under the map, alongside a brief description explaining the data.
Challenges we ran into
Finding a library that allows us to easily create an interactive map.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
