    About the YPN?

    The Young Professional Network consists of a cross-section of new GIS professionals that have been working in a public or private sector organization for 1-7 years. This community includes recent graduates and more experienced professionals just beginning to leverage geospatial technology. Young professionals in this community have a diverse range of experience and skill sets.

    YPN Update from the BeSpatial's May 5th Virtual Town Hall meeting

    COVID-19 has been a crisis that has impacted professionals of all ages. This has been entirely new territory for all of us. While we all might be experiencing this together, young professionals are at a bigger disadvantage. Having not experienced working through a recession before, young professionals and those newly graduating are faced with a difficult challenge.

    Companies have transitioned to work from home and increased safety measures have been put into place for essential field workers. Companies have offered support programs to help improve access to workplace wellness resources and support essential workers during this difficult time. The way young professionals work and complete their jobs has changed. Where there once was in person staff meetings there are now web meetings and conference calls.

    For many young professionals working from home previously was unfamiliar territory that comes with its own set of challenges. To overcome these challenges young professionals have been resilient finding new ways to work and communicate with others effectively. This includes setting up a dedicated workspace, maintaining a schedule, making use of breaks during the work day and increased communication with team members. Overall young workers are adapting to the ever changing work environment leveraging new technology and assisting with the transition where possible.

    In response to the evolving situation regarding the Corona Virus,  we want to make you aware of the COVID-19 Resource Hub Esri Canada has developed for public use:

     https://resources-covid19canada.hub.arcgis.com/

    This GIS hub is a collection of data, maps, applications and other resources available to assist in monitoring, preparing for and responding to the rapidly changing situation. You may be aware of some of these resources already, such as the Johns Hopkins COVID-19 dashboard, as they have been featured on many news media outlets over the past couple weeks.    These resources are being curated for the Canadian and global health community to use and share as the pandemic unfolds.

    These apps and web services are for your use with your applications, as part of your emergency response operations and or as stand-alone dashboards.  Esri Canada is already working with many municipal, provincial and federal organizations to operationalize these applications for their use.   If you would like any help, please reach out to Esri Canada at: https://esri.ca/en/contact-us

    Dear colleagues, 

    The current situation involving COVID-19 emphasizes the importance of having timely and accessible information available to the public at all levels of government. As important collaborators and supporters of Canada’s open government activities we are reaching out on behalf of our colleagues at Statistics Canada’s Linkable Open Data Environment Initiative, which aims to enhance the use and harmonization of data from municipal, provincial and federal sources.

    In order to increase public awareness of available health facilities across the country, Statistics Canada is looking for relevant data to support an up-to-date open database. The attached email outlines additional context, including the data sources that have already been compiled for this initiative. Our colleagues at Statistics Canada are requesting any updated or additional open or publicly available datasets that contain information on location and type of health facilities. For reference purposes, we encourage you to look at a similar initiative that was completed for educational facilities at this link.

    In hopes of expediting a response to our colleagues, we encourage you to reach out directly to Alessandro Alasia from Statistics Canada at alessandro.alasia@canada.ca/   We hope that you will find a way to support Alessandro and his team in their efforts as they move quickly to compile this information by the end of the week.

     Kind regards,

     TBS Open Government Team

    As the situation surrounding coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic continues to evolve geospatial data and technology is being widely used to support a wide spectrum of government and other organizations with mapping, location intelligence and business insights. This helps to monitor, manage and communicate the impact of the outbreak.

    Below is a link to the Geospatial Knowledge Platform showcasing examples of Covid-19 related information dashboards.
