Maybe ESRI based their dashboard on copying Jones' work in Florida. If she did such a good job designing that dashboard, that requires some design savvy, so she's got to be more than a simple HTML hacker. Her masters was in GIS not data science, but she obviously picked up some of the latter along the way. She was a manager, not a grunt.Well she was fired for not doing what DeSantis was asking. So obviously, he and the rest of them have decided the next best route has been to attack her credibility. And I have pulled multiple articles that have mentioned her work on the dashboard. It doesn't sound like it was an "out of the box" plug and play system as PE wants you to believe. If that were the case....more and more states would have had similar setups. Fact is.....Florida was acknowledged early on by Dr. Brix for their dashboard and the amount of information that was available. Jones was behind the dashboard from the beginning. I believe pompous called her nothing more than a junior data entry person. Sounds like a fair assessment, huh?
On a side note....and Georgia has been criticized for this. I am not sure if this was the issue Florida had in this situation.....but on the topic of when to count positive tests. Seems fairly simple. Count them when they test positive. Trying to bring other factors in muddies the water. Georgia has been trying to back date them to when they first started noticing symptoms, and it's causing problems. They are showing different daily counts. They wanted to do this to show declining numbers as they opened up the state.....but almost no other states are doing it this way.
