NAPSG Foundation is compiling publicly accessible COVID-19 geospatial and situational awareness resources from a variety of sources for the purpose of providing a clearinghouse of resources that may be helpful to the public safety and GIS/technology community in responding to COVID-19. This page will be updated as new resources become available.
COVID-19 STATE-LEVEL GEOSPATIAL RESOURCES
Use the interactive map below to access publicly available state-level GIS viewers and dashboards made available to support COVID-19 response. Additional state-level resources will be added to this map as they become available.
GUIDANCE FROM ESRI ON UNDERSTANDING THE POTENTIAL COVID-19 IMPACT ON YOUR ORGANIZATION OR COMMUNITY
Map the cases—Map confirmed and active cases, deaths, and recoveries to identify where COVID 19 infections exist and have occurred.
Map the spread—Time-enabled maps can reveal how infections spread over time and where you may want to target interventions.
Map vulnerable populations—COVID 19 disproportionally impacts certain demographics such as the elderly and those with underlying health conditions. Mapping social vulnerability, age, and other factors help you monitor at-risk groups and regions you serve.
Map your capability to respond—Map facilities, employees or citizens, medical resources, equipment, goods, and services to understand and respond to current and potential impacts of COVID 19.
Communicate with maps—Use interactive Web maps, dashboard apps, and StoryMaps to help rapidly communicate your situation.
ACCESS THE ESRI COVID-19 GIS HUB
On theCOVID-19 GIS Hub, you will find valuable and ready-to-use demographic and other data from best available sources, the user community, and business partners. You will also find practical apps that immediately aid better understanding and decision-making. This includes a collection of datasets, applications, and other useful content for your planning and response. These materials will be updated with new content as it becomes available.
As fire and EMS agencies consider how to best prepare for, and respond to, occurrences of the COVID-19, all fire chiefs are encouraged to review the materials provided by the International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC) and other authoritative sources.
