BeHealthy Presentation (Sneak Preview)

1. The Spatial Pattern: Modeling of Tobacco Complaints

Hongcheng Zeng, at the Region of Peel, is a business intelligence specialist. His presentation will include a review of the Region’s analysis of spatial patterns of tobacco complaints and the correlation between the following spatial factors: tobacco retailers, schools, and land use information. They have developed a model to predict the future complaint occurrence using impact variables, such as retailers and commercial areas. This spatial modeling approach is portable and can be applied in a variety of fields.

2. Multi-Volume Story Map Health Atlas Report Leveraging Structure and Flexibility of Story Map Templates for distributing comprehensive health topics

Adam Munro, at the City of Hamilton, is a GIS Analyst. His presentation will explore how the online utilization and management of spatial data through web-based applications within Public Health organizations for surveillance and reporting of case events has become common in recent years. The  ability to link health issues to a broader public provides context and enhanced functionality to public outreach and reporting to community stakeholders. Come hear how the story map platform is used to create a narrative reporting system which tackles several key health, social and economic issues facing school-aged children today.
