Description

This item was taken from the IEEE Periodical ' Generating Synthetic Syndromic-Surveillance Data for Evaluating Visual-Analytics Techniques ' This system generates synthetic syndromic-surveillance data for evaluating visualization and visual-analytics techniques. Modeling data from emergency room departments, the system generates two years of patient data, into which system users can inject spatiotemporal disease outbreak signals. The result is a data set with known seasonal trends and irregular outbreak patterns.
