Santé publique France is the national public health agency in France. Their vocation is to monitor, supervise, prevent, alert and take action on a wide range of public health topics in France. Informing the general public is one of their missions. To do so, Santé publique France relies on Géodes, their web geostatistical observatory based on Géoclip, in which they publish health monitoring indicators related to the French territory and population.
March 2020: France, as well as many other countries, undergo a global health crisis related to the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic. As part of their information missions, Santé publique France began disseminating data related to this crisis as soon as mid-March 2020 via their geostatistical observatory named Géodes. Since then, countless political leaders, health professionals, territorial actors and citizens from France and elsewhere have visited, and keep on regularly refering to, the Géodes observatory - whose data is being updated on a daily basis - in order to follow the evolution of the crisis.
Géodes is Santé publique France’s web geostatistical observatory. The indicators are taken right from the official sources. Santé publique France harmonizes, consolidates and documents them carefully in order to obtain the most objective possible view of the health situation in France. The multiple modes of datavisualization exploit the Space and Time dimensions of the information.
