Mapping COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) case and mortality data in QGIS



If you’ve been wondering how coronavirus is spreading globally, and wanting to carry out your own analysis of cases and mortality rates, this video provides a tutorial on how to map and visualise COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) case and mortality data using the free, open source GIS software QGIS.

It identifies reliable data sources for both the COVID-19 data itself and suitable base map data to combine it with, as well as the steps necessary to join the datasets together and visualise them effectively, both as a point size map and a chloropleth map (colouring polygons according to values), all using free tools available in the QGIS geographical information systems package.

Data sources for the exercise can be found at:
