weiwei commented on Public Access to Zika Data in order to Raise Awareness

Hi Adam, thanks for sharing the websites, it's really good! You raise great questions, and I don't know yet. I'm just thinking there might be separate maps for it, as different measures will be encouraged in different cases. For a place where locally acquired case is increasing, maybe measures would be taken building installations to kill mosquitoes, so links to tutorials of how to build them could be provided. Whereas a place where travel acquired case is emerging, maybe tips on preventive measures and advices on avoiding some areas could be provided.  What's your thoughts on how to visually distinguish them?

Thanks! Actually the map is build on google's API, and I took Zika infectious data from CDC's website, I wish CDC could build an API to share real time data though.

And thanks for your advice @Minh Nguyen! You made good point on raising awareness VS not to create anxiety. And I think additional educational information and tips on not get infected would help. And I haven't thought of how to communicate the information yet. Mobile app could be an option, how about printed on the coffee or grocery recipes? Or on the metros and buses?

Thanks Nikhil Gangaraju ! I didn't thought of a predictive model yet, as I am still looking for a good real time Zika data source that is constantly updating. The current one is just based on the static table provided by CDC. And it could be even better if the data could instantly updating with crowdsourced data.
