Visualization of the regional COVID-19 Development in Germany
26 Apr 2020
The situation report from the RKI contains a figure which shows the development of the pandemic in Germany over the last 7 days. I wanted to know how this progresses over time and whether the outbreak clusters remain regional.
I used Pandas and Folium to recreate the figure and created this animation. See the code on Github to reproduce the result with current data.
I used Pandas to preprocess the raw data from the RKI.
The map is generated with the choropleth function from Folium. Selenium is used to store the maps as png sequence.
The final animation is created with FFMPEG and this Gist
