  • Why my course is useful

    Dashboards are the eye candy that managers want these days. But the process to build one is much more than a few clicks. It's a project to determine a workflow and decision management process that defines how the dashboard is built. Knowing the start to end process elevates your technical value.

  • Why I built it

    I've been thrown into some technical GIS projects driven by new requirements like COVID data. It took a lot of on the fly interactions with many people and the result was a process needed by many counties and cities. So rather than have new GIS analysts get surprised by similar circumstances, I wanted to teach the process to others.

  • What I hope for you

    With many conversations about application requirements under our belt, I hope you can use our work as templates for your own health related dashboards. You'll be able to build a critical GIS dashboard in 1/10 the time it took me!
