URISA International Board approved this statement regarding the events in the State of Florida Dept. of Health COVID-19 dashboard. As reported in the press, Rebekah Jones, a GIS Professional (GISP) who created and maintained the dashboard, was required to make changes that undermined the dashboard's effectiveness. Her situation highlighted how the GIS Code of Ethics that every GISP agrees to when they earn certification informed her actions. The GIS Code of Ethics is not unlike those of other professionals who are certified or licensed. The public must be confident that these codes guide our work. The URISA Board approved the statement on Friday, June 19, 2020.
