Description

HealthMap is a team of researchers at Boston Children's Hospital that utilizes “online informal sources for disease outbreak monitoring and real-time surveillance of emerging public health threats.” They collect data from multiple sources that mention disease, including official reports, news aggregators, and eyewitnesses. They then compile and organize the data, with consistent labeling and metadata, and release it through their website and a live API. We have compiled alerts from 3 months in 2012 and aggregated this data into various slices (below).
