GeoTimeline is open source contact tracing software built by an international team of volunteers.
Get up and running right away with software that you can transparently see how it works.
By clicking on exact points on a map and assigning date and time it is easy to quickly add multiple precise points in time and location.
By being able to view the underlying code in open source and to transparently check that data is being shared anonymously the community can self-verify that their information is being protected.
By being able to use applications such as point to point directions that avoid contact area on your web application they see the value of the contact tracing data being collected and will encourage others to participate.
Your contact tracing workers will love how easy it is to quickly record contact tracing in the natural flow of a conversation.
Your community will be motivated to interact with you and encourage others to do so.
By making your data available in a private and anonymous way you will enable application developers to build risk mitigation planning applications.
“We have spoken with engineers and executives at a number of the largest US companies that hold location data on Americans' movements and locations and generally they have told us that their data is not suitable for determining who was in contact with whom for purposes of Covid-19. "
“Rather than focusing on a contact tracing app, Ross Anderson recommends pouring resources into hiring human workers to serve as paid contact tracers who monitor the spread of the virus — a measure that's showing early signs of success in Taiwan and Germany. "
“Contact tracing is an old public health approach used particularly for TB and selected STDs, to identify individuals who may have been exposed and who may be incubating the infection and require treatment. As practiced in the past, it is labor intensive and requires substantial training of the those acting as contact tracers. "
“There are absolutely privacy concerns – you’re dealing with both people’s health information, and also data on where they’ve been and who they’ve seen. In order to do contact tracing properly, you have to know a lot about where someone was and who they were with at the time, and doing that on a massive, automated scale is absolutely a situation where a breach of privacy could very seriously impact the people you are trying to help.
