Library of Congress GIS Day Event on November 18th: Mapping the Pandemic
From the Library of Congress:
You are invited to join the Library of Congress in celebrating GIS Day on Wednesday, November 18th from 1-4pm, with an afternoon of engaging talks and discussions on the theme of “Mapping the Pandemic Cases, Traces, and Mutations.”
This presentation will premiere with closed captions on both the Library’s YouTube site and on the Library of Congress website. The presentation will also be available for viewing afterwards at those sites.
Speakers for GIS DAY 2020 will look closely at how mapping and GIS technologies have been used to help public health officials, emergency rooms, epidemiologists and the general public as they all struggle to understand the spread of the disease and to allocate precious resources.
