AICP | CM: Leading in a crisis with spatial data

Launching SAVI GIStalks with SJSU’s Provost and Mr. Ensheng (Frank) Dong, developer of the Johns Hopkins University Covid-19 Dashboard

By Prof. Ahoura Zandiatashbar, San Jose State University, September 13, 2020

The Spatial Analytics and Visualization (SAVI) Center at San Jose State University is housed in the Department of Urban and Regional Planning, College of Social Sciences. The SAVI Center uses the power of geography and Geographic Information Science (GIS) to produce impactful research and professional services to serve our university departments, neighborhood organizations, public agencies and private sector entities in Silicon Valley and the Bay Area.

SJSU Provost and Professor Vincent (Vin) J. Del Casino will kick off this inaugural event to launch SAVI GIStalks and provide some opening remarks. SAVI GIStalks are designed to engage and educate a broad audience about how GIS can be deployed to address societal and environmental challenges.

Our presenter is Ensheng (Frank) Dong, PhD candidate and lead developer of the Johns Hopkins University’s (JHU) Covid-19 Dashboard. The dashboard demonstrates how GIS technology and data visualization are leading efforts across the U.S. in mitigating the spread of the Covid-19 virus and managing the pandemic.

If you would like to attend, please RSVP here through Eventbrite.

This event will be live on the SJSU’s Department of Urban and Regional Planning Facebook page as well.

This event is sponsored by the Department of Urban and Regional Planning and the University Consortium for Geographic Information Science.
