Pakistan ranks 130th of 195 on the Global Health Security Index, with its growing population significantly vulnerable to disease outbreak.
The NCOC (National Command and Operations Centre), Pakistan’s body governing policies and implementation for COVID relief, required a strategy to prevent, predict and map COVID outbreaks in Pakistan.
TPL Maps developed a GIS Decision Support System that utilized proprietary location data and government provided data to facilitate NCOC decision making:
Cluster analysis of historical outbreaks.
Population density analysis to better capture potential outbreaks.
Visualization of hospitals, quarantine centers, and isolation centers to aid in field force relief efforts.
Geofencing for smart area specific lockdowns.
Better decision making around social distancing, testing and emergency response.
Reducing ease with which COVID was able to spread in target areas.
Monitoring and tracking of relief efforts.
