    Junior high school students make searchable COVID vaccine center map (2021/07/28)

    Students at Taipei Fuhsing Private School have created a COVID data website that makes easy sense of pandemic numbers. Students at the junior high started the project in May, when Level 3 forced them into remote learning.
    With the support of teachers, they made user-friendly diagrams for COVID case numbers, as well as a searchable map of vaccine centers.

    COVID hit Taiwan for real in May, with hundreds of cases emerging a day. Two months later and the numbers are greatly reduced. Meanwhile, a group of students has produced a website that helps organize all the data for easy access.

    This is the Taiwan COVID-19 real time geography data site. It tells you how many cases were recorded each day, as well as the age range with the highest death rate, and the ratio of male to female patients. Everything is arranged in population pyramids, line graphs and other diagrams that make the data easy to understand. You’d never guess it was the work of junior high schoolers.

    We decided we would do it on about May 20. At that time, these students in the team were in eighth grade. I taught them how to sort the data, how to use GIS to analyze it, and things like that. We took it all step by step, so we spent about two months to get it set up completely.

    It was our first time doing such a big project. And it was remote learning, so in communicating we experienced lots of problems. But luckily in the end we were able to produce this really awesome result.

    I had to report the progress I had made to my team members straight away. Because otherwise they would be held back because I was stuck on some place.

    The students were led by a team of teachers specializing in public health, geography and data analysis. They were studying medical maps in May when the pandemic worsened, and they could put their knowledge straight to use. Over the last two months, they collected a lot of data, and, with the help of analysis by teachers, managed to construct the basic design of the site. Aside from case data, there’s also a map of vaccination centers. Type in your address, and you can find your nearest center.

    We hope that the general public will be able to grasp the latest developments on the vaccine in Taiwan, in a fairly objective, up-to-date, and visually simple manner.

    The students relied on open access data from the government. You or I could always look it up for ourselves, but now, there’s an easier way. Thanks, kids.
