COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Visual Analysis Hub

Supporting the community, sharing insights

Information on the Coronavirus pandemic is changing in real time. To support worldwide communities in managing the effects of the virus, we set up this information hub, including live interactive visual data science analyses, as well as blogs and partner contributions. Our goal is to understand community outbreaks and healthcare resources in real time and assess the local effects of non-pharmaceutical interventions. From this page, you can download a Spotfire Starter Template, curated data, and analytics scripts for building your own customized COVID-19 application.

COVID-19 Spotfire Application

This interactive application has visual analytics that show the current outbreak status, growth trajectories, rate of spread, effects of interventions, and healthcare resources. Use it to see global patterns and interactively drill into your local region. This video shows highlights of the TIBCO Spotfire® COVID-19 application:

Meeting the challenge of this pandemic calls us all to be deliberate and thoughtful, and so, too, does the data you’ll find through this app. For those who are not interested in exploring the data, key takeaways are in the Summary and Community Actions sections at the end of this blog.

Washington University

Washington University

WashU Genetics is undertaking a variety of approaches to combating COVID-19, including bioinformatics apps developed with TIBCO SpotfireⓇ software. One app uses functional genomics tools to explore how human (host) genetic variation affects the ability for the virus to enter the cell and the cell’s ability to trigger an immune response. Another Spotfire app examines units within the viral genome (known as “domains”). A dataset capable of exploring the COVID-19 genome and domains is available by request from WashU. Learn more.

Build your own COVID-19 application with the Spotfire starter template

By providing access to a variety of useful datasets that are refreshed daily, the downloadable Spotfire® template allows users and partners to quickly get started with COVID-19 analysis: 

  • Johns Hopkins University CSSE public data on global Coronavirus cases, deaths, and recoveries in countries, provinces, and US counties
  • US Census Bureau data on US state and county populations
  • Disease Virulence data on several viruses aggregated from multiple sources 

The template includes R scripts and data workflows that download and clean the latest public data.


Data sources used:

Complete list of data sources used in the Live Spotfire App is maintained in the Release Notes of the Live Spotfire App itself.




Built with contributions from many TIBCO Colleagues. Special thanks to the members of the TIBCO Data Science team who are working on these analyses using Spotfire software (visual analytics, R, Python): Neil Kanungo, Peter Shaw, and Prem Shah supported by Vinoth Manamala, Eric Hsu, David Katz, Colin Gray, Ian Pestell, Andrew Berridge, Heleen Snelting, Mike Alperin, and Dan Rope.
