Interactive Web MAP

Humanitarian Aid Infographics

Objective: Leadership wanted to share with the public it's Humanitarian Aids Efforts during the COVID pandemic.

Solution: I came up with the idea of using an interactive map, where a user can scroll over a country and an infographic would pop up to showcase the donations.

Collaborations with the web developers for design and functionality allowed the concept to become reality.  

I created an infographic for each country. Our team had to cross-check facts with embassies as well as collaborate with the Donations/Accountant Spreadsheets to ensure correct information. 

Color scheme/map design/ and inforgraphics desicions were mine. I HEX colored matched colors already present on AFRICOM's web page.

To the right is an image that helped present the concept to leadership, to get approval for the project. 

The project was approved and active on AFRICOM's home page. 

Due to boundary disputes and changes to country lines, the interactive map had to be taken down. However, here is a link to the humanitarian infographics that can be found on AFRICOM's webpage.
