Opioid Awareness Maps is a configuration of ArcGIS Pro that can be used by public health and safety staff to produce overdose and death maps used to communicate the severity of the opioid epidemic. Ultimately, overdose and death maps can be assembled in to an Opioid Awareness story map and used as a foundation for many opioid response activities.

Opioid Awareness Maps includes a series of tasks to import existing incident data or geocode new incident data; aggregate overdose and death information; and share a series of reporting layers with key stakeholders. In cases where incident information only exists in hardcopy medical examiner and public safety reports, Opioid Awareness Maps can be used to automate this information and create awareness maps for their community.
