Location Intelligence. A Life-Saver as well as a Business Advantage

We are pleased to publish the announcement of a relevant Seminar from the guys at Esri.com, who do the ArcGIS mapping software. Now you can see the problem areas of Coronavirus – on a place near you. Or hopefully not near. And you can plan accordingly.  Robby Deming, their Senior Media Strategist writes to us: 

“I wanted to let you know about an opportunity to connect with Esri’s Chief Medical Officer Dr. Este Geraghty about coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) mapping and analysis.

As part of Esri’s Healthcare Information Technology 2020 Webinar Series, Dr. Geraghty will be leading a live webinar on April 23 from 10:00 a.m.–11:00 a.m. (PDT) entitled “Informing Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) Response with Location Intelligence.”  Dr. Geraghty will provide an overview of mapping and data resources Esri is providing to public and private organizations impacted by COVID-19 and will detail a prescriptive, five-step plan for communities to assess their local vulnerability. Dr. Dora Barilla from Providence St. Joseph Health will share some of her organization’s experiences with managing COVID-19 and discuss the importance of mapping and location intelligence during a pandemic.

The webinar will also include a Q&A between Dr. Geraghty, Dr. Barilla, and attendees.

You are invited to register online for this free webinar.”

At a time when relevant and accurate news on this topic, is surprisingly rare, the concept of how we handle in various different ways,  our hot spots of epidemic, is important.  Worth a listen.
