Chris Thomas, Director Government Marketing, Esri sheds light on the role maps and geospatial visualization are playing in the efforts by government officials to fight COVID-19. We talk about examples of Esri ArcGIS innovations such as the Johns Hopkins University COVID-19 dashboard which has been used to generate over a trillion maps, indoor GIS tools that can be used to solve the puzzle of social distancing, the Community Contact Tracing app that maps person-to-person-to-places relationships to quickly identify hot-spots and super-spreaders, and the role artificial intelligence and machine learning is playing in the analysis of historic, real-time and unstructured data.
