Web personalization at its best.

This unique widget is capable of showing focused detailed local statistics for 4500+ locations around the planet. The key feature of the widget is a local disease rank information as well as visual representation of rate of growth, flattening, deceleration with integrated recent infected cases history chart.

Your web page visitors will see how safe it is in a particular local area. Personalized stats include local threat level around the user as well as country and global information.

Local Risk Rank developed by mathematicians.

VirusWeather Rank calculations were developed by mathematicians and include multiple local data points into account such as population size, density and recent dynamics of new cases.

Instant server side generation and compact file size.

Dynamic widget generation is done instantaneously (under 0.2 second) without any delays from our cloud based collection of thousands of updated local widgets. Compact (under 35 Kb) PNG image shows local covid-19 coronavirus statistics and calculated relative area risk rank based on website visitor IP geolocation.

Easily adjustable size designed with Retina screens in mind.

Recommended optimum size is 250×250 pixels for square banner which can fit into most websites. At the same time the true graphic resolution of generated widget images is 1000×1000 pixels. We do not recommend going above 500×500 pixels size to take advantage of retina screen benefits. Use this plugin at your own discretion in smaller sizes such as 200×200 pixels or less. Keep in mind that you may lose the sharpness of fonts when going below 200×200.

Отличный виджет, очень прост в установке, показывает актуальные данные. Есть удобная настройка в виде выбора светлой или тёмной темы, а так же выбора размера, что не маловажно для меня, соблюсти светлую тему в дизайне и выбрать средний размер в своём блоге! Просьба к разработчикам добавить функционал по ручному выбору Города или Области и сделать выбор показа виджета в 1 строчку для того чтобы можно было разместить в шапке сайта!!

Having dynamic location by visitor IP is awesome for articles that do not have local targeting but fixed location is something I use for articles that are written for particular city and I want my site's visitors to always see location associated with article and not where visitor is at. I think fixed location should be default option because many webmasters have locally targeted blogs.
