Spatial analysis and GIS data are powerful tools helping government agencies protect and improve their constituents’ quality of life. The public health sector is increasingly turning toward using GIS Data because this data provides the ability to gather, monitor and analyze data on a map in order to understand and reveal relationships, patterns and trends.
When public health departments need to determine where different public health resources and programs are needed, spatial data is uniquely helpful. GIS allows government agencies to track and manage information and share important material with constituents and other jurisdictions. Digital maps layered with data illustrate the relationships between diseases and locations, and disease clusters. This spatial view of a community paired with public health data offers easier analysis of health issues, helping officials develop effective policies.
