FOCUS COVID-19: Efficient dashboard built from "Drop to Kibana" gives you accurate insights in seconds
As previously shared, we built a Kibana dashboard from the open data Covid19 released by John Hopkins University. We forecast to show you shortly "step by step" way to get this results but first, we sum up here an overview of the benefits to use such datavisualisation and exploration tools as Drop to kibana.
3 Big Benefits of "Drop to Kibana"
1. Never lose a droplet of the "oil": Fully use raw data
We pushed into elasticsearch kibana all and exhaustive daily records available from March 22nd.
What is important is that we ingest all raw data with geolocation (longitude, latitude), timestamp in "state" with simple drag and drop. Each day, around 3000 records are available covering the world Covid-19 situation and we integrate each of them every day very fast and simply!
We guess you'll prefer the result in Kibana dashboard instead of the raw data as the exemple herefater😉. But all the "oil" is collected and ready to be used, no droplet of data is left down2020/04/21 | FOCUS COVID-19
