Large and medium-sized retailers who are now eagerly waiting to re-open their stores are heavily dependent on geo-spatial datasets on deciding which outlets to open and which ones to not open. Similarly, big-ticket manufacturing companies are using geospatial data to analyze their suppliers’ catchment areas and effectively plan their sourcing strategies. Supply chain professionals across organizations and logistic companies are planning to extensively use geospatial data for the route optimization of their vehicles by avoiding the red zones. Moreover, analyzing data of existing health infrastructure and census data sets and mapping it to those infected can help policymakers and concerned authorities in identifying COVID-19 containment zones. Similarly, such analysis can also estimate the load on each corona testing centre and help health officials to set up more labs or increase or decrease the capacity of existing ones depending on population density and distance to the testing laboratory. With so many practical applications TOS is emerging to be a very effective tool for governments and corporates. TOS has been maintaining a Corona timeline and created interactive digital maps of all the districts in India, and colour coded them to map all the Covid19 related information.
