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.

GLEAMviz 6.6 version: new ways to play with epidemic data

We are proud to announce the release of the 6.6 version of GLEAMviz. This version is taking advantage of the new dashboard introduced in the last update of the software and introduces several new tools for data analysis and visualization.

  • Invasion Tree: we provide a new visualization tool that for each stochastic realization of an epidemic shows the entire sequence characterizing the spreading of the modeled diseases from one area of the world to another. In the case of multiple realization the most likely invasion tree is visualized.
  • Treemap: GLEAMviz allows now the possibility of creating a hierarchical (tree-structured) representation of the attack rate of the epidemic in different geographical locations as a set of nested rectangles.
  • Analyzer: this tool allows the plot of multiple epidemic curves from different regions of the world. The new functionalities include the possibility of plotting different class of individuals and use simultaneously different geographical scales.

This release also improves performance and squashes a few bugs. The GLEAMviz team is now busy in implementing new functionalities and visualization capabilities, as well as bringing new features to the modeling engine.

The new version of the software is available here, or, if you already have version 6 installed, you can use the builtin autoupdate of the GLEAMviz client to download the new version (go to “Preferences > Check for updates” if you want to manually trigger the auto-updater).
