Community Health Mapping Workshop [$]
Have you witnessed the potential use of mapping in public health but are intimidated by the technology, or simply too busy to pursue it?
After the success of the 2016 annual meeting presentation
attendees requested this hands-on training session to learn how to incorporate the Community Health Mapping (CHM) workflow into research and training programs.
Attendees will learn and discuss novel concepts and methodologies for using low cost, open-source, intuitive mapping technology for students, educators and community organizations to better serve vulnerable or underserved populations. This interactive workshop will provide examples of academic health centers and community-based organizations using the CHM workflow to help visualize data and better understand and portray its significance. During this 4-hour hands-on workshop attendees will:
- Build a data collection form using Fulcrum
- Use the data collection form to gather data from around the conference hotel
- Map data previously collected during an online exercise in Carto
- Practice mapping the data in QGIS
- Describe the Community Health Maps workflow which includes low-cost and open resources for community mapping and data visualization.
- Create a data collection tool on a mobile device that can be used to collect community data.
- Learn how to map data collected online in and on the desktop.
