Location Intelligence in the Era of COVID-19 – Map Resources

Authors Photo Joe Francica | May 4, 2020

Mapping technology and the insights derived from location intelligence are helping to alert and allay fears during this time of the coronavirus. Maps are helping to inform the public about the proximity and spread of COVID-19 without prejudice and hype.

Location intelligence and mapping tools are also being used to provide insight into where future outbreaks may occur. One example is the fever map by smart thermometer company, Kinsa. Additionally, New Jersey officials have been using location data from the state’s symptom self-assessment tool to identify potential hot spots and prepare local healthcare providers.

So, let’s look at some of the other resources to track the spread of COVID-19. 

COVID-19 global maps

One global resource that many other websites have been citing during the pandemic is from Johns Hopkins University Center for Systems Science and Engineering (CSSE). Their site provides an interactive map with up-to-date totals for confirmed and active cases at the country level, as well as views by province/state and county levels.
