Coronavirus (COVID-19) Data Resources
The Maine GIS User Group wants to assist in providing access to reliable COVID-19 outbreak GIS data. The Map on the left is an interactive MangoMap updated daily through online streaming sources from Global Mapper as hosted by Blue Marble Geographics. Blue Marble is also providing a list of verified COVID GIS data sources at the Blue Marble verified COVID-19 datasources page. Additionally MEGUG in conjunction with the Maine Geolibrary Board is providing access to Maine GIS outbreak data through the Maine Office of GIS and their COVID-19 dashboard. The links on the right of the map provide more information and access to that dashboard. As GIS users and professionals we encourage all members of MEGUG to assist in anyway they possibly can with the effort to map and analyze outbreak data. If you have any suggestions or comments feel free to email us. Stay safe and let's flatten the curve.
As part of the State of Maine coordinated response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Maine Office of GIS has created a dashboard, web map, and feature layer that update daily with Maine CDC case data at the county level. That content is now available in the Maine GeoLibrary Data Catalog:
