This presentation discussed how Ur-scape, a GIS-based visualization and data tool developed by the Future Cities Laboratory, was used to perform a cross-sectoral analysis in the Indonesian city of Makassar to identify positive correlations between COVID-19 transmission patterns and population density, land use, main transport hubs, access to water and income level. It also emphasized the need for multisectoral planning, specifically in the integration and combining of data for better urban planning to achieve truly resilient cities.
