Current epidemiological mapping tools, such as the Johns Hopkins University Covid-19 Dashboard, face functional and formal design challenges when compared to hyper-phenomenal scope of the ongoing pandemic. In part a response and a critical reflection on these already extant tools—we have sought to ameliorate some of socio-technical problems with epidemiological mapping and data display through the development of our own socially-conscious mapping tool. As a review of our current project scope, we first describe the stakes of the pandemic and pose questions related to the aforementioned design challenges. We then review some of the ways writers and designers have sought to consider and address current problematics with data mapping, visualization, and sonification. Finally, we conclude by describing how our project aims to offer a more comprehensive response through user choice and control, n-dimensional data display via sonification, and the integration of socio-political data into epidemiological layers to better represent Suffolk County’s lived experience with COVID-19.
