Project Summary, Description, or Purpose

The DASH-SAFE dashboard will help users visualize in real-time safer and riskier areas on campus, and will provide navigation routes based on people’s movement throughout the day. It will provide building managers real-time information about risky areas to help them quickly address problems that might increase viral spread and will help keep all campus occupants safe from viral spread and reduce their stress. Campus occupants are encouraged to participate in an online survey to visualize their safety/risk locations on the dashboard.

Specifically, we will use Survey123 for ArcGIS and REDCap to conduct the online surveys. The DASH-SAFE dashboard will visualize (1) locations of perceived safety and risk of campus indoor and outdoor spaces in real-time, (2) use predictive modeling of movement of people through campus over time for the navigation tool, and (3) objective assessments of the building-related risks of and indicators for viral spread.
