Visualisation and Analysis (4.41)
The goal of this project is to create a tool that disseminates analysed and useable spatio-temporal health information to health professionals, regardless of their spatial information background.
The tool, known as HealthTracks, can be used to identify populations at disease risk and gaps in health service delivery. Furthermore, the resulting visualised information helps communicate these gaps and risks to local program leaders and decision makers so they can make decisions quickly and accurately.
The challenge is to create a dynamic tool which ensures patient privacy, while providing as much detailed health data as possible to the end-user about localised health needs.
- Demonstrator end-users from Department of Health WA continue to provide feedback to researchers
- The project team have met with TICHR, PSMA, GeoScience Australia and Office of Spatial Planning to explore the relevance of research to other disciplines
- The initial prototype was completed, incorporating a Map Server for analytical web mapping, a context aware interface, and a flexible visualisation module that links a number of visualisation on the fly
- Simon Moncrieff used that prototype to inform the design and implementation of a new Map Server/SDI prototype that focuses on an extensible, scalable approach for data analysis and exploration through a web GIS
