Dr. Darrin Weber and his fall semester ChangeLab class students, Maya Frederick, Timmy Miller, Ethan Morlock and Pearl Muensterman gathered, cleaned and created visualizations of demographic and coronavirus data in our selected region. Their work culminated in an extensive data visualization of the coronavirus progression in our seven state project area. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=smvmyHHNNEI" target="_blank">Learn more about the app and research.Full size Mobile0000017c-83f8-d4f8-a77d-b3fd0da00001

CBC: Data Confirms Pandemic Models


Since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic, a tool created by a University of Evansville ChangeLab class has been logging and archiving daily county by county data for a seven state area of the Midwest

WNIN's Steve Burger talked with UE mathematics professor Darrin Weber about what the data they've collected confirms about the progression of the coronavirus pandemic in the Midwest.

For our COVID Between the Coasts collaboration, University of Evansvillemathematics professor Darrin Weber and his ChangeLabclass created a tool to gather seven types of data each day during the pandemic and present it in a visual way that is easily understood by anyone. (Mobile)  (Desktop)

“The lasting impact is that it’s a detailed account of exactly what took place, according to the numbers.”

Weber says the project confirms what the mathematical models predicted for the progression of the pandemic in the Midwest. The information will be archived and become part of the historical record for future researchers and policy makers.
