About the Johns Hopkins webinar series:
The novel COVID-19 pandemic has already profoundly impacted the world in ways that have not been seen for generations and the full effects have yet to be quantified. Geospatial Technology plays a critical role in understanding and combating the virus threat. Learn how Geographic information Systems Technology (GIS) is being leveraged as a powerful data visualization and analysis tool for making science-based spatial decisions that have real-world consequences. Explore how COVID-19 epidemiology data, location intelligence, and map visualization technology are used to support a variety of pandemic web maps, graphs and applications used to raise awareness, inform public decision-making, and guide policy decisions on a global scale. Through this speaker series, attendees will gain an understanding of: cutting-edge geospatial practices used in epidemiology (past and present), the use and application of GIS on a global scale, the biological nuance of the Coronavirus, and how COVID-19 data can be and is used by city, counties, states and government to make critical decisions.
In Part 1, industry experts will be sharing experiences and big picture workflows of using geospatial technology to display and analyze COVID-19 data. Speakers include:
Enhseng (Frank) Dong, PhD Candidate from Johns Hopkins COVID-19 Dashboard Team
Dr. Este Geraghty, Chief Medical Officer and Health Solutions Director at Esri.

The City University of New York (CUNY) GIS Working Group is looking to contribute to the COVID-19 response. We have identified four mapping-based projects that will meet urgent needs that have arisen as a consequence of the pandemic. The primary objective of these projects is to assist activists and advocates who are working on the ground to help vulnerable communities—e.g., those with food insecurity, housing insecurity, and incarcerated people.
If you have already responded, we request that you reregister. Our apology for the inconvenience, but the signup form for the COVID-19 related mapping projects was missing a field for entering your email address that would have allowed us to contact you.
If you have not yet responded, we invite you to have a look at the Project Descriptions and consider joining one of our teams!
The timeline of all of the projects is from now until the beginning of June. And the time commitment will vary depending on how many people join each research team.
