First developed by Xavier University – Ateneo de Cagayan in partnership with Department of Health Region X, the Geospatial Risk Database Decision Support System uses a spatio-temporal approach in mapping COVID-19 and creating greater understanding of biological hazards and natural disasters to prevent a pandemic in the future.

During the closing session of the 6-day training program, city teams presented their initial project outputs which consisted of a preliminary dashboard, ArcGIS StoryMaps, and their work plan for the full development of their COVID-19 Web-based Geospatial Risk Database.

At the end of the training, Participants were able to produce initial outputs, such as a preliminary dashboard, ArcGIS Storymaps, and a customized work plan for development of their COVID-19 Web-based Geospatial Risk Database.
