New Crown Pneumonia Epidemic; Reduce Cognitive Anxiety; Information Visualization.


Purpose: To reduce people’s cognitive anxiety during the special period of the epidemic through the use of information visualization methods, and to build a psychological construction for correct understanding of the epidemic. Methods: Analyze the causes of cognitive anxiety, and propose to reduce cognitive anxiety through data screening and display and visualization design in information visualization design, to reduce people’s cognitive anxiety in emergencies. Conclusion: Through the design of the new coronary pneumonia epidemic data visualization network platform, it provides a valuable model for the research on how to reduce cognitive anxiety through information visualization design.
