The work you do to support awareness of COVID-19 in your regions is important and The Esri Community is here to help. Collaborate by sharing your ideas, questions, resources, or projects here in the GeoNet Community. We put together this collection of COVID-19 discussions currently happening in GeoNet, and we invite you to review, stay updated, and get inspiration from those who are working on solutions right now.

Collaboration Tips

Continue to collaborate about coronavirus awareness with these five tips:


  • Work Out Loud: If you have a project or solution that you’re developing, share your concepts with other members to help them think through ideas.

  • It’s Okay to Be a Learner: We are all at different stages with GIS, the variety of technology, and the knowledge of data available. Outline what you do or don’t know (including the steps you've taken so far), what you think you need, and what you’re trying to achieve.

  • Use Tags: Tag your content with covid19, covid-19, and coronavirus so that others can find your content.

  • Share to Multiple Places: You can post content in one primary place and share it with other relevant places. For example, if you are using multiple products, but you also want an industry perspective, post your content in one place to reach that audience and share it with the other places involved with your content.

  • Add your resources, tips, and collaboration opportunities to the discussion by commenting below:  If you have resources, data, information, or a collaboration opportunity to problem-solve or create a solution, comment below and we will update it to this list as a resource. Updates will be made to this document as they develop.
