TrackMyTemp Foundation is a nonprofit organization (seeking 501(c)(3) status) whose vision is to aggregate and synthesize human temperature data for researchers, governments and others to better forecast and control the spread of COVID-19 and other infectious diseases world-wide.

This project came out of a belief that sensors inform us about the world in which we live. When it comes to infection, a fever is a sign that our bodies are defending themselves, and a thermometer is the sensor we reach for. When we take our temperature, we normally don't do much with this information, other than pass it on to a doctor as a measure of possible sickness. However, if we come together to share temperatures, we could help track the spread of community-wide or world-wide infectious disease outbreaks.

This site makes it as simple as possible for people to record daily temperatures, while working to ensure their privacy is maintained. This site strives to provide timely information for researchers who model the spread of these diseases, helping government and Non-Government Organizations (NGOs) better deploy their limited medical resources with maximum effect.

Data sources used to create this service

Geolocations are modified before being stored in the TrackMyTemp datasets based on the population density of the geolocation provided by a user's device. The population density is based on the WorldPop 2020 Global Mosaic/1000m Population data. This data is used with the following attribution:

WorldPop (www.worldpop.org - School of Geography and Environmental Science, University of Southampton; Department of Geography and Geosciences, University of Louisville; Departement de Geographie, Universite de Namur) and Center for International Earth Science Information Network (CIESIN), Columbia University (2018). Global High Resolution Population Denominators Project - Funded by The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation (OPP1134076).

Reverse geocoding of country, state/province and US county is made possible by the vector map data provided by Natural Earth.
