Outbreak globe

This Web GL globe Google Chrome experiment displays vaccination outbreaks between 2006 to 2015 based on data from the Council on Foreign Relations. The globe was easy to work with, but could do with a little more documentation.

All the outbreaks, regardless of date and disease (mostly measles, mumps, rubella, pertussis and polio) are shown in blue with attacks on vaccination workers shown in yellow-ish. The size of the spike is linearly proportional to the number of cases, but it’s capped at 40000. The actual maximum number of cases is 130000 in one instance but including that reduces the smaller outbreaks to just dots.
