Session Overview

The public’s health and wellness are directly linked to where they live. But in a post-pandemic world, how can geographic information systems (GIS) enhance the full gamut of public health programs and practice?

We’ll review real-life Canadian use cases related to COVID-19, demo recent GIS innovations in a public health context, and highlight new sources of data that will bring new insight to Canada’s access to health services. By the end of this webinar, you’ll have a deeper understanding of how GIS can facilitate the digital transformation of Canadian public health by enhancing business operations, analytic workflows, collaboration and public engagement.
