How ArcGIS aids response

Inventory and map key resources

Monitor the current inventory of personal protective equipment (PPE) and the capacity and status of facilities. Map the location of these resources and their readiness to deliver critical services.

Model the surge

Use common public health modeling tools like the COVID-19 Hospital Impact Model for Epidemics (CHIME) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) COVID-19Surge to understand and visualize outbreaks and the potential impact on your community or organization.

Manage testing sites

Mapping social vulnerability, age, and other factors helps identify at-risk groups and target locations for testing sites that serve the greatest need. Optimize site locations and communicate their status to the public.
