V-RESAS

Visualising the economic impact of Covid-19 in Japan

In June 2020, The Cabinet Office of Japan released V-RESAS, a website for analysing and visualising the economic impact of Covid-19 within Japan. The website shows data such as people's movement, food and goods consumption, and trips and stays. Takram directed the concept making, UX/UI design, and visualisation of the website.

*Takram worked on this project with a commission from the Teikoku Databank, Ltd., and Suzuyo Shinwart Corporation, principal companies of the project. The project was passed on to a new management body in July 2021; thus, some of the designs and functionalities might differ from what is described on this page.

About V-RESAS

V-RESAS is a tool that offers insight into the impact of Covid-19 on all industries on a regional scale for decision-makers of businesses large and small. The data is updated every week, allowing users to plan and manage their business resources based on the region's economic and social status.

The letter V of V-RESAS was given after "Vital Signs of Economy," hoping that V-RESAS would function as a cardiogram of the economy.
