Story Map on COVID-19 Research

I have designed a story map summarizing the key findings of my GSF project that is concerned with examining the relationships between coronavirus, age, and comorbidities. The story map can be accessed at this link:

The story map highlights the results of the OLS regression and geographically weighted regression (GWR). Maps displaying residuals and R-squared values are included together with model fit statistics.
The story map is intended for a generalized audience who is interested in learning more about spatial data analytics.
