I have chosen to do a Malaria data visualization for my final project. Malaria is the second largest killer in the world, but because it affects more of the third-world population, few people here in the U.S. really understand its impact.
I plan on visualizing this data using Google heat maps combined with Malaria deaths data from the World health organization.
Challenges so far include:
- Tighter grip on using recursive code practice to change a country's name in the m alaria data to a lat lon value
- Writing several code snippets
- Combining data
- I also want to add a search bar, where a country's name is searched and the value is shown on the heat map, at the right location
