The Project

Open Source Data and Mapping for Covid-19

In this unprecedented time of Covid-19, we decided that we had a responsibility as both developers and concerned citizens to do our part to contribute to the effort. We thus decided to develop a Covid-19 data tracker equipped with a heatmap and other features designed to help users to become informed.


This site sources data from third parties who are credited in the sidebar. We also provide API access to our own data for others to use. The bulk of this data has been imported from the Johns Hopkins CSSE Covid-19 project which provides latitude and longitude coordinates.


API

Our site and project provides a JSON API endpoint that anyone can use to query information used by our map. This data includes a latitude and longitude position for recorded Covid-19 deaths. Below is an sample of a URL and the data returned.
