Supramap on Google Earth

Caption: Associate Professor Daniel Janies, Ph.D., an expert in computational genomics at the Wexner Medical Center at The Ohio State University, is working with software engineers at the Ohio Supercomputer Center to expand the reach of SUPRAMAP, a web-based application that synthesizes large, diverse datasets and displays them in geospatial browsers. This is a screenshot of the spread of H7 influenza as produced by SUPRAMAP and visualized by Google Earth™. This view illustrates the historical spread of high pathogenic lineages (high-altitude red lines) and the recent local evolution of high pathogenicity (low-altitude red lines).
