Geographic Information Services, Incorporated (GISinc), in conjunction with the City of New Orleans (NOLA), will host a free webinar on Thursday, October 27th at 11:00 a.m. CST. GISinc’s Outbreak Control Surveillance (OSC) is a new Zika prevention and preparedness tool for state and local governments, which enlists citizens help through location based decision making tools.

As cases of Zika continue to increase in the United States, local governments are asking what measures they can take to help prevent the spread in their communities. OSC provides a way for communities to quickly engage against the spread of Zika through Esri’s ArcGIS platform and host of information products for vector borne diseases.

"In New Orleans we have seen, first-hand, the power location technology can deliver to streamline a paper-based mosquito risk inspection process. A process that leveraged citizens as sensors communicating real-time inspection results to decision makers on a dashboard. A powerful digital transformation story that brings to life the idea of location-based decision making," Kevin Stewart, Managing Partner, State and Local Governments.

Local governments, health departments, mosquito abatement companies, and concerned citizens will not want to miss this opportunity to learn how their communities can quickly implement OSC for Zika, which can be re-purposed for any vector borne disease or outbreak situation.
