Mato Ohitika Analytics has been working on a state emerging trends and hot spots to better understand local county influences during the Covid-19 Pandemic still occuring in the United States. This pandemic is not over and despite our government's denial of this fact, we need to stay diligent in reporting the facts as we know them and as they come in.

Here is a preview:

Mato Ohitika Analytics has released Phase IV & Phase V of the preliminary analysis of the Covid-19 Space Time Cube.

This includes multiple map series of the Covid-19 Virus confirmed cases that were constructed using a Space Time Cube (STC).

The data is courtesy of USA Facts, Thank you!

Here is the full project by Phase:

To make things easier to navigate I have prepared an easy index to the map series found below:

Set I - The Nationwide Covid-19 Confirmed Cases in the US by County


  1. The set of maps using the Mann-Kendall Test for trends in the US by county, nationwide.
  2. The set of maps showing the Emerging Hot Spots in the US by county nationwide.

The Data Sovereignty Initiative

The Data Sovereignty Initiative is a collection of ideas that forms the data sovereignty framework. The data sovereignty framework conceptually is an intriguing way to incorporate a nation building approach, coupled with higher education as the foundation for integration of data science throughout Indian country. The term Indian country is a term that has been defined as “country within which Indian laws and customs and federal laws (United States) relating to Indians are generally acceptable”.

Initially, the goal was to critically examine Federal Indian Law and policy to better understand how the use of data could be used in American Indian tribes’ economic planning and development. The foundations of this framework have evolved into a proof of concept system of data collection and practice that involve the use of four key indicators addressing not only analytical data driven metrics, but cultural and tribal governance metrics. In a nation building approach, governing institutions match indigenous political culture.
