Presenter: Ensheng (Frank) Dong, PhD candidate and lead developer of the Johns Hopkins University's (JHU) COVID-19 Dashboard.

This webinar is presented by the Spatial Analytics and Visualization (SAVI) Center at San Jose State University, housed in the Department of Urban and Regional Planning. The SAVI Center uses the power of geography and Geographic Information Science 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 with opening remarks. SAVI GIStalks are designed to engage and educate a broad audience about how Geographic Information Science (GIS) can be deployed to address societal and environmental challenges.
