I heard that Google created, for the purpose of Covid 19, the: "Community Mobility Reports"

I am impressed by the speed with which it was done, the information contained therein and the sources of information used

What is your opinion on this topic?

They had the data all along - all they did was start to share it in an easy to consume manner. This does beg the question - who have they shared/sold it to before COVID-19, and what were they/others doing with that?!?

Dear Kiron
Thank you for participating in this reflection and for the fantastic questions you raised

But the information they share in the "Community Mobility Reports" is very useful, it is no less true
Have to agree with Kiron. The data has always been there, they've just put it into an easy to read format for public consumption. Makes you wonder what other data they have available related to the pandemic they could publish?

Dear Jason

Thank you for participating in this reflection and for your opinion

They certainly have the data we provide them about us.

PMI (and therefore ProjectManagement.com), like Google, has a lot of data about us.

The important thing is what they are going to do with them :-)

Dear Luis,

I do not know if this happened to anybody else, but when I checked the report for my own home country, Ireland, from the list of countries, clicking on it opened multiple tabs on my web browser that I was forced to close the web browser.

Maybe there is still a few glitches in the system that need ironing out before it can go fully live.

All the same a nice thought by Google and using the huge amount of data they gather on a daily basis for something constructive.

We agree.
It seems like a good initiative.
I just consulted the data about Portugal
