Hi all,

See below for a free webinar series of potential interest, offered by the
Johns Hopkins University Energy and Environmental Programs Speaker Series,
"Making Sense of COVID-19 Data through Geospatial Technology":

Also, I can't recall if it has been shared yet on this listserv, but great
visualizations of trends at the country level can be found here:

*About the Johns Hopkins webinar series*:

The novel COVID-19 pandemic has already profoundly impacted the world in
ways that have not been seen for generations and the full effects have yet
to be quantified. Geospatial Technology plays a critical role in
understanding and combating the virus threat. Learn how Geographic
information Systems Technology (GIS) is being leveraged as a powerful data
visualization and analysis tool for making science-based spatial decisions
that have real-world consequences. Explore how COVID-19 epidemiology data,
location intelligence, and map visualization technology are used to support
a variety of pandemic web maps, graphs and applications used to raise
awareness, inform public decision-making, and guide policy decisions on a
global scale. Through this speaker series, attendees will gain an
understanding of: cutting-edge geospatial practices used in epidemiology
(past and present), the use and application of GIS on a global scale, the
biological nuance of the Coronavirus, and how COVID-19 data can be and is
used by city, counties, states and government to make critical decisions.

In Part 1, industry experts will be sharing experiences and big picture
workflows of using geospatial technology to display and analyze COVID-19
data. Speakers include:

Enhseng (Frank) Dong <https://coronavirus.jhu.edu/map-faq>, PhD Candidate
from Johns Hopkins COVID-19 Dashboard Team

Dr. Este Geraghty, Chief Medical Officer and Health Solutions Director at
