Visualization and Visual Analytics

On 14 May 2020, a lead scientist of the Scottish COVID-19 Response Consortium (SCRC, one of the RAMP teams) first e-met one UK VIS/VA scientist (who answered the RAMP's for volunteers in April) to discuss the visualization support for the modelling effort. On 15 May, a call for VIS/VA volunteers was sent to all VIS/VA academics in the UK and a number of VIS/VA researchers and developers in the industry. By the end of May, 22 VIS/VA volunteers joined the SCRC. Within two weeks, they were grouped into seven teams. By the end of 2020, there were 29 VIS/VA volunteers in the group.

Between 1 February 2021 and 31 January 2022, most of the RAMP VIS activities were funded by UKRI-EPSRC. On 1 February 2022, RAMP VIS resumed its volunteering status. Many colleagues who worked during the funded period volunteered to continue some aspects of their work. There are currently 37 VIS/VA volunteers in the group.
