LIVE WEBINAR ON POST-COVID 19 AND GEOSPATIAL TECHNOLOGY organized by Geoinfotech and Center for Advanced Research and Development (CARD) to cross-fertilize ideas and share thoughts on the interplay of Geospatial Technologies and Urban Planning for the containment and cushion the effects of COVID 19 in Nigeria.

Geography as an academic discipline has tremendously helped to analyse the Spatio-temporal pattern of diseases of COVID19 and also identifies the spread of COVID19 over space and time, its transmission and a future spread, identify factors responsible for the spread of the pandemic and most importantly develop preventive measures against the disease. According to the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) as at 8th of June 2020, the south-west region of Nigeria, in particular, Lagos state has recorded 6,767  confirmed cases of the disease, FCT (Northcentral) 952 confirmed cases, Edo(South-South )401 confirmed cases, Rivers state (South-East) 332 cases, Borno (North-East) 356 cases and Kano (North-west ) 999 confirmed cases among others.

 

In a bid to demonstrate the relevance of geospatial technology which has tremendously been adopted as a tool of research in understanding and analysing the Spatio-temporal of COVID 19,  researches are still been conducted towards its effect on human wellbeing, resource deployment, disaster management and development of urban issues associated with COVID19, Geo-Information Technologies organized a live webinar and workshop tagged: ‘Post COVID19: Geospatial Technology and Urban Dynamics’. This programme brought together practitioners, research scholars, policymakers, academic community and the general public to cross-fertilize ideas, share thoughts in addressing critical areas of research with a view to developing policy intervention to cushion the effect of the pandemic and prepare for Post COVID 19 in enhancing sustainable national development.

 

Geospatial is an emerging field of study in the world of Geography, it is a system designed to capture, store, analyze and present all types of spatial or geographical data. In buttressing this point one of the guest speaker Dr. Joseph Olumoyen a lecturer of Geography from the University of Ibadan spoke on the ‘Application of GIS and RS mapping for Disaster Management’ by showing how GIS can be demonstrated in mapping health facilities, location-allocation of medical facilities, deployment of human and material resources for a prompt response disaster management. GIS and remote sensing are incredibly useful and effective tools in disaster management. These technologies have been the object of substantial interest for all countries and bodies concerned with space and in exacting emergency services and disaster management.

In disaster management, the objectives of the disaster experts are to monitor the situation, simulate the complicated disaster occurrence as accurately as possible so as to come up with better prediction models, suggest appropriate contingency plans and prepare spatial databases.

The major steps indicated by the discourse to combat the further spread of the disease are;

  • Mapping the capacity by using knowledge of the vulnerability to help to understand the CAPACITY to respond. The capacity- gaps to be filled can also be revealed through this.
  • Communicating the result with maps, maps remain a veritable channel to communicate to people in a way they can understand, to quickly respond to the crisis. Some countries are using interactive Web maps, dashboard apps, and Story Maps to help in prompt communicating the situation to determine business impacts, school closure etc.

This will help to ‘FLATTEN THE CURVE’ and lives saved.

Another major part that tackled was handled by another guest speaker Dr. Hezekiah Olaniran also a lecturer of geography from the University of Ibadan who did an overview of ‘The dynamic of Urban planning and city configuration’. Urban Dynamics are the forces that shape and reshape cities over time and can happen gradually and also as a natural process or as coordinated government actions due to some process of change.

He examined how we can plan the city in terms of facilities in the areas of housing, residential, commercial activities and other dynamics of urban planning and governance. Benefits of GIS in Urban Planning can be seen as Greater efficiency in retrieving information Faster, easy and extensive access to different types of geographic information required for planning, Improved analysis. By strengthening the underlying fabric of a city and better understanding the potential shocks and stresses it may face, a city can improve its development trajectory and the well-being of its citizens.
