Mapping Worldwide effects of COVID-19

COVID-19 Dashboard is a concerted effort between the European Space Agency (ESA), Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA), and National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). It combines the resources of these three agencies to visualize the environmental and economic effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. Move around the map to see indicators color coded by relationship to normal baseline data. Green is better, blue is similar and red is worse.

For example, the air quality in many cities including New Delhi has gotten better with the decreased level of economic activity. Click on a point to reveal a detailed chart showing the changes in the selected factor.
Other indicators include water quality.
Here you can use a slider to compare conditions in the Venice Lagoon between January and June.
Economic activity indicators include shipping and agriculture. This graph shows how harvests have slowed in the Castille and Leon region of Spain due to the decreased mobility of seasonal workers.
You can also see night light images of various cities and compare different months.
