A Graphical Representation of the 2014 West Africa Ebola Outbreak

In December of 2013, a 2-year-old boy died in Guinea. Researchers believe this boy was the first person to contract and spread the Ebola virus disease that eventually affected more than 25,000 people worldwide. There have been over 25,000 reported cases of the disease, and it is believed that the actual number of cases may be two to three times as what has been reported. The graph below, created in Grapher 11, shows the number of cases reported in each location, and which locations are still reporting new cases of the virus.

Number of reported cases of Ebola

The epidemic has been contained in many countries, but three countries in Africa have reported new cases in the last month, including Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone. During the course of the epidemic, some patients were medically evacuated to isolation wards in other countries for treatment. The map below, created in MapViewer 8 shows which countries had the most cases and where the disease spread, as well as where patients were medically evacuated.

2014 Ebola Epidemic

In August of 2014, the World Health Organization published a plan to control the outbreak in West Africa. International governments and organizations are still working to prevent further transmission of the disease.

I recently took a trip to Tennessee to attend the 14th annual Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival. The festival takes place on a 700-acre farm in Manchester, TN. In addition to music and art installations, Bonnaroo has campgrounds organized by pods, a cinema tent, a comedy theater, and more! Upon arrival to the festival, attendees are given a map of the festival site. With stage names that include What Stage, Which Stage, This Tent, That Tent, and The Other Tent, the map is a necessary tool for many attendees! For this post, I used a combination of Didger 5 and MapViewer 8 to recreate the map and export it to KML to display in Google Earth.

To begin, I downloaded the PDF version of Bonnaroo's map (pictured below) from their website.

Map downloaded from Bonnaroo's website.

Next, I used Google Earth to locate some known points to use to georeference the image in Didger. A few of these points are pictured below.

A few reference points used in Google Earth.

I imported the PDF into Didger and calibrated it using the points I retrieved from Google Earth. I quickly realized, though, that this approach was not going to work well for me. While the map I downloaded from Bonnaroo's website is a great and very helpful visualization of the festival site, it is not a very accurate map. That is, it is not properly oriented, has an odd field of view, and is not necessarily drawn to scale. This map is not a great candidate for accurate digitizing. Didger was able to locate the map correctly, but not without great distortion and warping. The warping made it difficult to digitize the areas in their (relatively )true shapes.

Back to the drawing board. I wasn't giving up yet! I decided I wanted to recreate this map, and I was going to do it! This time, I decided I could digitize directly from a Google Earth image. I returned to the area pictured above in Google Earth and added a few more pins for reference points. I also added pins in each corner and noted their coordinates. I took a screenshot, and I was off!

I imported the screenshot into Didger, georeferenced it using the coordinates from the pins in the corners, and began manually digitizing using the Draw commands. When my digitizing was complete, I exported the map to a DXF file in order to continue working in MapViewer.

In MapViewer, I created a base map from the DXF file, and I adjusted some line styles to make some areas stand out. After I edited line widths, I created a legend and then exported to KML. I edited the line styles in MapViewer because Didger does not currently export the line widths to KML. Below is the final map displayed in Google Earth.

MapViewer

In addition to all the great new features packed into MapViewer 8's thematic mapping software, Golden Software has also spruced up the user interface! Let’s take a tour through some of the improvements we’ve made. Each of the commands in the old MapViewer 7 toolbar have been mapped to the new command location in MapViewer 8’s ribbon bar, so click on a command in the screenshots below to determine where your favorite commands have moved.

Ribbon Bar

The biggest change to the user interface is the change from the classic menu to the ribbon bar menu. The ribbon bar may look familiar if you use Grapher 10 or 11, or Microsoft 2007 or newer products such as Word, Excel, or PowerPoint. Here, you’ll find all of the features you used in MapViewer 7 and more! The ribbon can be quickly and easily customized by right-clicking on the ribbon and clicking the Customize the Ribbon command. Additionally, if you prefer a more traditional display, you can minimize the ribbon by right-clicking and clicking on the Minimize the Ribbon command.

Toolbars

The ribbon bar has also replaced the individual toolbars, such as the Standard, Drawing, and Map toolbars. For your convenience, you can add your most commonly used commands to the Quick Access Toolbar.

The Quick Access Toolbar has been added to put your most commonly-used commands at your fingertips! The Quick Access Toolbar (QAT) is fully customizable, and by default, contains commands such as New Plot, New Worksheet, Open, Save, and Print. To add a command to the Quick Access Toolbar, simply right-click the command and click Add to Quick Access Toolbar. You can also right click in the ribbon bar and select Customize the Quick Access Toolbar to add, remove, or rearrange commands in the QAT.

Managers

The managers have been updated to give you the utmost control over the display of your thematic maps! MapViewer 8 has 5 managers—the Property Manager, Object Manager, Data Manager, Coordinate Manager, and Inset Manager. The appearance may have changed slightly, but, for the most part, the Data Manager, Coordinate Manager, and Inset Manager remain the same.

The Object Manager in MapViewer 8 contains a combination of what was previously in the Layer Manager and Object Manager in MapViewer 7. Each layer in the map is now listed in the Object Manager. Click the + next to the layer to see all the objects on that layer. Select an object to change its properties or view information about it on the Info page of the Property Manager. Select a layer to change the map properties in the Property Manager.

The Property Manager, previously called the Property Inspector, has been enhanced to make changing the display of your maps easier than ever! The Info page contains information found in the Object Manager, the Layer Manager or in the Property Inspector in MapViewer 7. The other pages in the Property Manager change according to what type of object or map layer is selected and provide access to editable properties. Much of the information that was displayed in dialogs in MapViewer 7 has been moved to the Property Manager in MapViewer 8, to make it easier than ever to see what can be customized.

Commands

Below are screenshots that contain each command from MapViewer 7. Click on the command to see where it is located in MapViewer 8!
