Systems Café: Beyond maps: How GIS is helping us better understand data and enhancing obesity research
Title: Beyond maps: How GIS is helping us better understand data and enhancing obesity research
Presenters: RRC GIS team and Project 3 (Nicole Robinson, MS, Atif Adam, MD)
Time: Feb 26, 12:15pm - 1:15pm
Location: W2017, JHBSPH
This month’s System Café will look at geospatial science as it relates to obesity research. The presenters will demo some of the GIS related work from project 3 and review GIS on its use in obesity research linked to location, demographics, and the environment to better understand the variations in health and social outcomes. Ranging from geographically relevant data analysis to powerful data visualization, the presenters will look to present GIS as a medium to integrate data, create evidence, identify inequities, better inform decision makers, and aide in planning/targeting appropriate interventions.
