This is part of the, Beyond-EO Center of Excellence of the National Obsservatry of Athens, wider initiative to deliver reliable and timely reporting to the general public at this critical time.
The WebGIS platform is updated on a daily basis and provides robust and accurate information about the Covid-19 spread worldwide by producing up to date statistics and graphs aiming to depict the impact of the disease at global and national level. However, in the case of Greece, the platform allows us to have more fine grained insights reaching a deeper level (NUT3 and municipality).
The dashboard pulls data from official sources, specifically, the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC)., the Johns Hopkins Coronavirus Resource Center, the World Health Organisation (WHO) , as well as the Worldometers statistical website
To complement and enhance the existing domains of knowledge on the COVID-19 impact, authorized users can gain access to official Health Authorities, Civil Protection Organisations, and Municipality/Regional Authorities and easily upload additional data on a larger topographic scale such as municipality level.
COVID-19 outbreak is undoubtable the defining global health crisis of our time. Our utmost priority with our new data platform is to illuminate our current knowledge and understanding, to a greater extent and decode the connection that might exist between the climate and environmental essential parameters.
