Business Problem Solved

Providing a central location for COVID-19 data and community resources for the people of Albuquerque. Prior to the implementation of the "Albuquerque Coronavirus Data Hub" there was not one place to find the information on confirmed cases, recovered cases, and other metrics.

There was also not a central location to find meal sites, (both senior meal sites and school meal sites), public WIFI Access points, or COVID testing sites. The "Albuquerque Coronavirus Data Hub" provided a central place to find these types of resources and metrics.

Technology Implemented

ArcGIS Online, ArcGIS PRO, ArcGIS Solutions, ArcGIS Hub, Dashboards, Survey123, Web AppBuilder, StoryMaps, and Experience Builder.
