The COVID-19 pandemic is the most serious health threat of our lifetime. Regional agencies have looked to convey specific types of COVID-19 case data such as the information coming in from hotline calls from the public. This course will teach you how to collect, visualize, and analyze incoming data in a web dashboard. You will be able to know the health-risk levels, travel patterns, contact info, and geospatial distribution of your callers.

Why my course is useful
Dashboards are the eye candy that managers want these days. But the process to build one is much more than a few clicks. It's a project to determine a workflow and decision management process that defines how the dashboard is built. Knowing the start to end process elevates your technical value.
Why I built it
I've been thrown into some technical GIS projects driven by new requirements like COVID data. It took a lot of on the fly interactions with many people and the result was a process needed by many counties and cities. So rather than have new GIS analysts get surprised by similar circumstances, I wanted to teach the process to others.
What I hope for you
With many conversations about application requirements under our belt, I hope you can use our work as templates for your own health related dashboards. You'll be able to build a critical GIS dashboard in 1/10 the time it took me!
