MapGive Virtual Mapathon: Mapping For Global Health

MapGive Virtual Mapathon: Mapping For Global Health

The MapGive team held their second annual Mapping for Diplomacy event in partnership with the National Museum for American Diplomacy - a virtual MapGive Mapathon focused on "Mapping for Global Health."

The mapathon hosted two speakers focused on how mapping can support epidemiology and policy decision making, and two other speakers who discussed using open data at the local level in support of COVID-19 response and other public health efforts (Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team and 2C Alum from Douala, Cameroon). The mapping project focused on the Greater Gaborone area of Botswana; participants added 3600 new buildings to the map and completed about 30% of the project.

  10. WHY MAP PUBLIC HEALTH? ▶ Public health is concerned with

    both risks and outcomes for populations ▶ RISKS (e.g., flooding, extreme heat, mosquito infestation) are mappable ▶ So are OUTCOMES (e.g., life expectancy, disease clusters) ▶ Maps often show these patterns much more cleanly and intuitively than other data visualization or communication tools

    help predict areas of concern and target resources where need is greatest ▶ Allocation and prioritization ▶ Key in addressing issues such as dengue where control options are available but invasive ▶ Outcome maps help identify where different populations are on the outbreak curve – ▶ Monitoring and forecasting ▶ Key in COVID-19 because different regions are going through the phases at different times
  12. WATCH FOR! ▶ It’s critical for the mapmaker to decide

    early on a target audience and analytic goal ▶ Otherwise, the map gets too “busy” ▶ True for all maps but doubly so for policy ▶ In foreign policy especially: ▶ Policy makers not usually steeped in technical details ▶ Minimal time to analyze ▶ May be making high profile decisions
  13. BEGIN WITH THE END IN MIND ▶ The mapmaker should

    consider at the outset: ▶ Who they *want* to read the map (and who *will* read it) ▶ What data they want to convey ▶ How to convey it parsimoniously and completely

  32. HOT: Mapping for COVID-19

  33. HOT is working towards a world where... • Everyone is

    counted • Map data is accessible and used in decisions that save and improve lives • Everyone can engage and contribute to the map With the Covid-19 crisis, this has never been more needed.
  34. 34 Lack of maps hinder ability to respond to healthcare

    issues Response to COVID-19 includes: • Testing • Treatment • Contact tracing This means a need for: 1. Disaggregated data on where the most vulnerable live (e.g. population aged 60+, populations likely to be immunocompromised such as HIV/AIDS)* 2. Missing data on health infrastructure such as facilities, testing sites, pharmacies, laboratories, etc. 3. Place names and administrative boundaries *taking into account responsibility not to expose individuals
  35. Priority 1: Help government agencies and responders Priority 2: Identify

    populations most at risk Priority 3: Increase map creation in at risk locations What we’re doing
  36. HOT’s COVID-19 response started in Cusco, Peru Why is mapping

    needed Ministry of Health needed to know where to prioritize aid distribution based on lockdown measures and assess household surveying/distribution.
  37. HOT was able to: ➔ provide GIS analysis to prioritize

    aid distribution ➔ facilitate remote mapping to complete the basemap ➔ provide technical support and training At the request of regional government in Cusco...
  38. Supporting COVID-19 response in Gaborone, Botswana Why is mapping needed

    Botswana Institute of Geomatics is requesting basemap completion for their COVID response dashboard used by the Government of Botswana. Critical to public health Completing the map in Botswana will help fight ongoing health crises incl. malaria & HIV/AIDS

  48. Page The Secondary Cities Experience Launched by the United States

    Department of State, the secondary cities project was set up to respond to the problems of urban resilience in large metropolitan areas with a high population density and a high rate of urbanization. ▪ The city of Douala was selected for this project in 2016 ▪ UASG Advisors (a local startup at the Incubation Center of the University of Yaounde I, Cameroon), in partnership with the University of Douala, the US Cameroon Chamber of Commerce, the University of Colorado and Hawkai Data worked on the development of a GIS application for the management of communication, information and access to services.
  49. Page The Cameroon Challenge an Impact on Douala …. It

    comes down to three (3) things: Streamlined communication to ensure citizens are secure and have access to reliable information that enable them to be prepared and deal with the impact of the emergency at hand Keep cities running during periods of reduced mobility/confinement to mitigate the impact of the emergency Ensure ease of access to essential services and products Managing emergencies in cities with rapid urbanization and population growth rate Population growth 2002:17,4 millions 2019:~25,88 millions Rate of urbanization 2019: 56,37% 2050: 70% [Worldbank-2019]

    Pillars: Information, Communication, Access to Services & Products Provide reliable information at the national, regional and local levels Communicate in real time at the national, regional and local levels Facilitate access to essential services and products.
