COVID-19: CARTO Geoanalytics COVID-19

Description

CARTO's Location Intelligence platform allows organizations to store, enrich, analyze & visualize their data to make spatially-aware decisions.

In the fight against COVID-19 maps have become a valuable tool in understanding the spread of the disease. Many organizations and individuals around the world are using maps for awareness, communication and to increase the effectiveness of CARTO's response. 

Using COVID-19 data to fight & contain the pandemic with advanced analytics is critical to protect public health & save lives. Using spatial data through mobile & web applications will allow us to beat Coronavirus faster.

  • Data Gathering
    • Gathering location data at the speed required to contain the pandemic is proving challenging, but web & mobile apps like Coronamadrid are allowing governments to manage the crisis more effectively with self-diagnosis mechanisms. By tracking symptoms, you can reduce the pressure on emergency hotlines & understand the pandemic from a spatio-temporal perspective with the data gathered.
    • Using COVID-19 data to fight & contain the pandemic with advanced analytics is critical to protect public health & save lives. Using spatial data through mobile & web applications will allow us to beat Coronavirus faster. 
  • Social Distancing Analysis
    • Many countries are using social distancing strategies to decrease the transmission of the virus before moving to full lockdowns. Using spatial data on human mobility, governments can see where measures are or aren’t working using dashboards, as well as including critical POIs (hospitals, supermarkets, clinics) to understand patterns. These insights can also be used by the police for law enforcement.
  • Overcrowding Analysis
    • With cities in lockdown, transport systems are experiencing a drop in demand & capacity. Alongside this there is a need for city authorities to provide essential services to health-care workers, first responders & other essential personnel. Spatial analysis can be used to determine areas at risk from overcrowding to ensure efficient movement of these individuals.
