Schema.org on Coronavirus

I'm curious if anyone has incorporated or is going to incorporate this new Special Announcement element from schema.org? 

Are there other practical items that are needed?

  • The NGA created a page with a lot of update information about global, national and statewide changes in the coronavirus pandemic that you may find useful. Check out the discussion and resource here >>

     

    Do you mean incorporate the special announcement on the hub ?

    • Navah, perfect example. NGA has some great information. However, there are so many, many organizations that are supporting together the nation in this crisis. NGA is a great aggregate, but pointers to other national agency (YMCA, CCAoA, etc.) would be so helpful. This way, NGA wouldn't have to keep up with all of the data. Does NGA have any interoperability for just data at this point?

      • here is the site https://www.nga.org/coronavirus/

        I am not sure who they are directly collaborating with, but they share a multitude of resources.

        • Yes, case in point. About a quarter of the way down they have a US map of cases. If you click on that, it takes you to the CDC web site. NGA is duplicating the data from the CDC. What I'm wondering is, does anyone know what interoperability is happening between this two orgs? Is NGA able to real-time capture automatically between the two or is their a human running the sync?
