With the rise of COVID-19, people were scrambling for timely, accurate information, notably on travel and the wave of restrictions. IATA published their updates under IATA Timatic – CORONAVIRUS OUTBREAK but it was still little more than a laundry list of countries and statuses.

The proof-of-concept used AmCharts libraries and examples + JSON data derived from the IATA Timatic to build a dynamic status map. The country data is currently manually updated (downloaded from IATA & parsed into a JSON), but eventually the objective would be to automate this step as well.

For those interested, the source code & JSON data can be found on GitHub and you can check it out also here:
