About the Map

World Community Grid has members from all around the world — as does our team. Also, they accept projects from anywhere on the planet. The map shows where all the World Community Grid projects are based. Select a disease overlay to see the geographic spread of some of the diseases we are working on.

The map also shows the location of team members (those that have provided a location).
