SPHTM Faculty comments
"I attended the PolicyMap training and tried it. I love it very much. It has a lot of data related with demographics, incomes & spending, quality of life, economy, education, and public health. It will be helpful for my students in the database management class to get data for their final project and show them as a map."
"I think that having Quality of Life as a data point really struck home for me in this presentation."
"PolicyMap will also be very helpful for our research. I always want to have a map to show where our >13,500 recruited subjects come from. With the PolicyMap data loader function, now I can visually see it."
"The PolicyMap data will help the effectively execution of our new NIH grant too. It allows us to locate direct mail campaign areas in order to recruit subjects with age 20-30. The 3-layer maps enable us to easily locate areas meet our criteria. Meanwhile, it also allows us to download and share the data with investigators."
5."This is great!...Can use for so many projects!"
"Very cool and relevant to a grant [I'm] writing!"
A secure Geographic Information System (GIS) based, electronic, interactive mapping application. It includes federal and public agencies (i.e. NOAA, USGS as well as other NGOs) into a single visual environment for enhanced situational awareness, assessment, and management of resources for planning, response to natural, man-made or pandemic events. GeoHEALTH is able to display many different datasets and information feeds including local data feeds to help all involved work with a more complete aggregation of data, thus allowing for more coordinated decision making and response.
