Timmons Group, a leading provider of geospatial solutions, announced their next webinar titled, “Squashing Zika with GIS!” The webinar is scheduled for Thursday, January 26th from 2:00 p.m. to 3 p.m. EST and will focus on best practices for leveraging GIS to manage Zika and other disease vectors. It will be presented by Lowell Ballard, Director of Geospatial Technologies and Chris Gerecke, Director of Enterprise Solutions of Timmons Group.
“Mosquitoes, like many organisms, breed in standing water,” said Ballard. “Many public and private organizations have the responsibility for managing stormwater and other utilities that are sources of standing water. Understanding where those standing water sources is the first step in combatting Zika and other diseases carried by these organisms.”
This presentation will focus on how localities and organizations can leverage GIS to identify sources of standing water (e.g., stormwater infrastructure), leverage asset management software (e.g., Cityworks) to manage inspection workflows, and introduce custom mobile and web software solutions to track treatments, inspection sites, trap locations, disease vector testing results, and facilitate same-day response to requests from the public for site visits.
Those that would benefit from this webinar are local government stormwater staff, individuals with public health responsibilities, health organizations, and GIS professionals that work for public utilities organizations. This webinar will also discuss potential sources of funding to assist localities and organizations in the identification of assets and implementation of tools to ensure facilities are treated and do not become public health concerns.
