This poster describes the design methodology and results for a pandemic visualization tool that was developed for validating a pandemic model. This work is the result of a collaboration between domain scientists, visualization scientists and a fine artist. While the primary goal of this work is to understand and communicate how an epidemic spreads across a country, we developed new visualization methods for population center glyphs and travel networks. The visualization tool was developed using Processing and uses geographical spatiotemporal views to explore the model dataset. The tool is interactive and easy to use. Close attention was given to visualization design aesthetics to create visualizations that can be easily understood by the general public.
