Using GIS to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic

Location intelligence changes the fight against coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). Maps and geographic information systems (GIS) provide valuable insights to help organizations respond to the crisis, maintain continuity of operations, and support the process of reopening.

Responding to the COVID-19 pandemic

GIS provides public health modeling and mapping tools for surveillance and monitoring, understanding resource capacity and needs, and improving critical communication. Maps deliver the insights needed to plan and respond in a rapidly changing environment and help slow the spread.










Collect real-time data on cases, testing sites, medical facilities, and inventory and capacity for key resources. Visualize the data with maps.


Analyze case data, bed and resource capacity, and community mobility. Identify where critical resources are needed and prioritize interventions.


Deploy resources based on real-time insights from the field, enhance critical communications, and monitor how your efforts are working.

Maintain Business Continuity

Location intelligence provides real-time insights about the impact the pandemic is having on the workforce, business, and key facilities in relation to customers or residents. Location intelligence helps organizations place the best resources to keep moving forward.
