The COVID-19 pandemic has had a profound impact on how we live, work, and play.
It’s also spurred organisations to use technology to create innovative approaches towards helping communities be more resilient in the face of the pandemic and other real-world challenges.
In support of their efforts, Esri Indonesia has launched the first Geo-Innovation Challenge – a competition to explore and promote the ground-breaking geospatial solutions that will help key local industries adapt and embrace “the new normal”.
