As the growing worldwide population becomes more mobile and urbanized, the risks that infectious diseases epidemic and their associated threats may reach global proportions are constantly increasing.

To effectively limit the social and economic damage caused by infectious diseases, the public health communities need to be in the position to anticipate the spatial and temporal evolution of epidemics and evaluate the potential impact of available containment and prevention strategies.

The global epidemic and mobility model, GLEAM, combines real-world data on populations and human mobility with elaborate stochastic models of disease transmission to deliver analytic and forecasting power to address the challenges faced in developing intervention strategies that minimize the impact of potentially devastating epidemics.

Version 6.7 of the GLEAMviz client has been released

We’ve just released a new version of the GLEAMviz simulator client, which features various improvements of the Visualization widgets and some under-the-hood refactoring aimed at providing better stability.
The new Visualization Dashboard allows users to explore the disease data aggregating the simulation’s output on a weekly basis, making it easier to compare them with official surveillance data. The background maps used for geographical visualizations have been uniformed throughout the widgets, and provide a higher resolution.

Invasion Tree animation visualization

Example of the Invasion Tree widget animation visualization when selecting a single city.

The Invasion Tree visualization widget has been extended by showing an animation of the invasion patterns from one city to another, or from one country to another, so to make it easier to perceive both the global flows and the local invasion dynamics.
