Dengue Open Data
Dengue Open Data is a dengue-related "data model" developed by a group of researchers. It is based on open data, and revolves around making raw data available, facilitating its re-use and creating tools that are adaptable to different objectives. The initiative responds to the difficulty of reusing the already processed information published by health surveillance services. The project also presents an open source prototype whereby different variables can be filtered and the incidence of the disease can be checked on a map across different years and regions of the country. All data is available for download in open data format.
