Going Viral

Uses the power of data visualization on multiple large data sets to examine changes in social mobility in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Users can see and compare society's changed habits across six key metrics from countries and subregions across the globe; how was Portland's response to quarantine different from Paris's? Data from Google and governmental agencies is selectively served out of a custom RESTful back-end.
