As the COVID-19 pandemic evolves rapidly around the globe, the Center for Geographic Analysis at IQSS is hosting an online forum focusing on time-sensitive geospatial research on COVID-19-related topics.
The CGA Virtual Forum: Responding to The Covid-19 Pandemic with Geospatial Research and Applications will be held on Friday (May 1), from 10 a.m.–1 p.m. ET via online conference. An international line-up of speakers will present geospatial topics such as data privacy, spread of misinformation, and planning for hospital surges, and will end with a panel discussion.
Registration is free; the meeting URL will be sent to registered attendees via email.
The Center for Geographic Analysis is a program at the Institute for Quantitative Social Science that administers Harvard-wide GIS infrastructure, collects and disseminates spatial datasets, and provides training and consultation in the use of geospatial technologies.
