COVID-19 & The St. Louis Geospatial Ecosystem

How can location technology and our geospatial ecosystem assist in the fight against COVID-19? What will our support organizations look like in the future? Can a geospatial startup successfully complete a merger in this environment? (Spoiler: YES! Congrats to Justin Bennett & the Geodata IT Team!) T-REX's Mark Tatgenhorst and a panel of STL area GeoFriends discuss these topics & more.
