Organizations have been using location-based data and technology for decades to understand the spread and impact of epidemics. But the widespread use of this technology during the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic has demonstrated how maps can be a critical communication and decision support tool.
Maps have helped organizations rapidly respond to the COVID-19 outbreak and slow the spread. Weeks after the pandemic shut down nearly every state and local government in the United States, many communities have leveraged location-based data to communicate reopening and recovery efforts.
As business and government leaders think about employees returning to work and locations reopening to the public, location-based data has helped them understand the extent of the epidemic near their business locations, improve internal business operations that ensure the health and safety of all individuals in their facilities, take steps to control health risks quickly, and engage key stakeholders.
ArcGIS includes a collection of solutions designed to help you respond to the pandemic, begin recovery efforts, and return to the workplace.
