Coronavirus Maps in South Korea

South Korea has witnessed the most number of reported cases of Covid-19 outside of China. The total number of cases is 977 and there have been 10 deaths. In response to the huge increase of reported cases of Covid-19 in South Korea a number of interactive maps have been started which are trying to track the spread of the virus within the country.

In recent days many of the maps have been struggling to keep up with the huge increases in confirmed cases of Covid-19. At the time of writing Coronamap.live, one of the most popular maps, is showing an error message saying that the map is 'temporarily unavailable' and may be back working tomorrow. Coronamap.site is another popular interactive map tracking the number of cases across the country (and is still working at the time of writing). You can also keep track of the spread of Covid-19 on Wuhan Virus. The Wuhan Virus site includes choropleth maps showing the total number of cases both within the Republic of Korea and globally.

If you are interested in maps tracking Covid-19 across the world then refer to this round-up of global Covid-19 interactive maps.

If you are thinking of creating your own Coronavirus map then you might want to have a look at this Mapping Coronavirus post from Esri's Kenneth Field. In this post Kenneth outlines a number of things that you should consider if you want to map the virus effectively and responsibly.
