Lightning Talks: Geospatial Visualization of COVID Cases in 2020

View on Snap!Con

Presented By: Matthias Giger


This project shows how you can visualize larger datasets in Snap! and even animate them over time by using the "Frequency Distribution Analysis" and the "World Map" libraries.

It allows students to have insight in data from the perspectives of space and time by using techniques from the openSAP course "From Media Computation to Data Science".

Format of presentation: demonstration
