Mobility Patterns Dashboard

We have created an interactive dashboard to visualize mobility patterns in Allegheny County. The dashboard helps to visualize the level of compliance with the shelter-in-place orders that were put in place due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The mobility data were obtained from SafeGraph.

Users can click on a census block group (CBG) on the map to visualize the mobility patterns relating to that CBG. The colors on the map indicate the level of mobility between the selected CBG and all other CBGs in the county. There are two modes of operation. The outgoing mode shows where the people who reside in the selected CBG are traveling to. The incoming mode shows where people who visit the selected CBG are coming from. Additionally, the date range can be altered to see how these patterns change during the various phases of the shelter-in-place orders.

The middle panel shows a more detailed view of the mobility patterns for the selected pair of CBGs over time. The right panel shows important census data for the selected census block group, including population, income, race, and age.

This dashboard is part of a larger project analyzing how social distancing compliance is related to COVID-19 deaths. For more information, read our paper, which will be presented as part of the epiDAMIK workshop. The dashboard is available at
