The University of South Florida created a map to track coronavirus cases and deaths throughout the state


“I’m a map geek and started tracking this right off the bat,” said Lori Collins, co-director of the Digital Heritage & Humanities Center at USF Libraries. “We were all looking at it and watching how the technology was being used (to track it overseas) and then we were brainstorming some ideas; we knew something was coming.”

The University of South Florida has created a coronavirus-tracking map that shows users both the cases and deaths that occur from the virus spreading across the world.


The tool was created by USF Libraries and the GIS unit of the digital heritage and humanities collections. It came to be after faculty noticed John Hopkins University created its own coronavirus-tracking tool for COVID-19 cases across the nation and by the time the first Florida case hit, the team was ready.
