From Mapping SARS to COVID-19: Why and How Geography Matters?

From Mapping SARS to COVID-19: Why and How Geography Matters?

This forum will feature speakers showcasing and sharing the stories behind two major GIS and online mapping platforms for COVID-19 in Hong Kong. Based on the challenges and lessons learnt, especially after SARS, the panel will focus on discussing map design factors concerning general perception, social impact, and policy implications. Key questions include: How to select appropriate dashboard designs? How to deal with variation in spatial scales? How to avoid creating panic in the community? And how to offer information to drive decision making? A 15-minute interactive session will be scheduled at the end of the forum for participants (joining by Zoom) to exchange with panel members.
