REDLANDS, Calif. — Esri is hosting a no-cost one-hour webinar Effective Vector-Borne Disease Surveillance and Control on Thursday, May 26, 2016 at 11:00 am PDT. The webinar will help city and county staff implement a complete workflow that is driven by understanding the location of information.

Geographic information systems (GIS) technology plays a vital role in monitoring and eradicating mosquitos, and ramping up to fast and efficient response when outbreaks occur. The webinar will introduce how the Esri ArcGIS platform can help create smart communities when collecting and analyzing data, improving operations and response times, and communicating critical information with the public.

Temporal and spatial information are critical to those efforts to curb the spread of disease. Organizations that harness the power of a location platform can achieve faster, more efficient response.”
