Changing Role of Land Surveyors
As the omicron variant of the Covid-19 virus triggered the fifth wave of the pandemic in Hong Kong, I recall working with a group of land surveyors from the Lands Department to build the interactive map dashboard of the Latest Situation of Coronavirus Disease in Hong Kong (https://chp-dashboard.geodata.gov.hk/) early during the pandemic (2020).
The dashboard was the first of many that would follow in cities around the world. To this day, it remains one of the most important official channels for informing the public on the latest pandemic developments in Hong Kong with some 62 million accumulative views as of this writing.
