In an effort to continuously provide real-time and credible information related to COVID-19, Google recently partnered with a local website – Dashboard Philippines, one of the first local websites to track donation drives and initiatives to communities, as well as mapping out the medical facilities in need of supplies.
With the help of Google Cloud and Maps, Dashboard Philippines updates its website to show relevant information such as checkpoints, donation centers, open establishments, hospitals that have available beds, and shuttle services for essential workers, among others.
Google has given Google Cloud Platform credits to Dashboard Philippines to run the app with no cost on their end. This allows developers to focus on building new features as well as new enhancements for the app. Google has also provided free Google Maps API credits so that Dashboard Philippines can continue to show real-time information and updates in response to the COVID-19 crisis.
The company is also working with Dashboard Philippines for donations and relief operations by integrating their data into Google Maps and Waze, providing easy access for those who want to contribute to the relief efforts.
