RAMPVIS project funded by EPSRC
Our project_RAMP VIS: Making Visual Analytics an Integral Part of the Technological Infrastructure for Combating COVID-19_ (01/2020 - 12/2020) has been funderd by the EPSRC funded project (EP/V054236/1). This work is continuation of our volunteering work in the Rapid Assistance in Modelling the Pandemic (RAMP) initiative. Bangor VIS experts, along with some twenty VIS scientists, researchers, and developers in the UK answered a call in May 2020 for VIS volunteers to support modelling scientists and epidemiologists in the Scottish COVID-19 Response Consortium (SCRC), which is one of the three consortia in the Royal Society’s RAMP) programme.
The Bangor team is involved in efforts of visual analyics for modellers and epidemiologsts (F. Vidal), public engagement through visualisation, data-driven storytelling and interfaces suitable for informing the public of the outputs of the modelling stages (J.C. Roberts, P.D. Ritsos), as well as more general data-driven guidance on COVID-19.
