This coronavirus outbreak is of course a great opportunity to use MapChart to create maps regarding the active cases, increase rates, and other stats about the pandemic.
This is a reminder to be responsible and thoughtful while making your coronavirus maps.
Take some time to fact-check your data and beware of fake news cases in this torrent of journalistic coverage. Please try to avoid using misguided or sensationalist symbology to get your message across.
A well-made map is one that is visually pleasing, informs the suitable audience, and has reliable and peer-reviewed data to back it up.
Also remember that you can create a subdivisions map for any country in the world, by taking advantage of the ‘Isolate’ feature on the detailed continent maps. Find a quick guide about the process here.
So, if you are going to do a map regarding the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak with MapChart, please do it responsibly and with attention to quality.
Thanks for being a part of the mapping community and stay safe!🌎
