Data visualisation tool by the Government of Japan, 2020

On 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 is directing the concept making, UX/UI design, and visualisation of the website. The website will receive additional features and data in the near future.
*Takram is working on this project with a commission from the Teikoku Databank, Ltd., the principal company of the V-RESAS project.



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.
