GIS 4570 - GIS in Public Health

GIS offers many applications and functionality that are tremendously beneficial to the Public Health industry. The ability to visualize cases in space (geographically) and time is invaluable in analyzing spatial clusters of health related events. Further the ability to model the spread of a potential epidemic can literally be a life saver. GIS is a natural choice for solving many Public Health issues including: analyzing the location of diseases; the spread of contagious diseases (both vector borne as well as the spread through human contact); the cause and effect of environmental factors; as well as the availability of Health facilities.

This course will expose students to various uses of GIS in public health applications as well as the underlying theories and technology behind the analyses. This course explores how the Public Health industry uses ArcGIS and demonstrates these uses through practical, hands-on labs that demonstrate the theories and concepts discussed in the text and lectures. Prerequisites: GIS 4101 - Introduction to GIS (or similar academic course and/or work experience)
