COVID-19 dashboards from Academia and research institutes

April 10, 2020

One of the earlier dashboards we saw during the COVID-19 crisis was from the Systems Science and Engineering at Johns Hopkins University (JHU). We also now find the University of Virginia, University of Oxford and the University of Wisconsin providing GIS-based dashboards. Here is a brief into their work.
