Support for GIS research throughout Harvard University is available from the Harvard Center for Geographic Analysis (CGA) which maintains a website It is the intent of this website to supplement the CGA website with information specific to health research. A handbook for teaching GIS to healthcare professionals, this reference discusses learning GIS software in the context of visualizing and analyzing health-related data. By outlining a hands-on approach that simulates how a GIS project would be developed in the real world, the included exercises set the student loose on real data with a tangible.

A Brief History. Medical GIS has its foundation in medical geography, which, can be found in the literature of several ancient civilizations, including China, Greece, and India, with perhaps the earliest coming from the work of the first physician, Hippocrates in the 5th Century BCE, who was among the first to observe the relationships between human health and the by: Geraghty is the author of numerous health and GIS peer reviewed papers and book chapters.

Key Points: The application of geographic information systems (GIS) to public health practice has great potential for improving our understanding of the ecology and causes of complex health issues, and for guiding the design and evaluation of effective population based programs and strategies.

A geographic information system (GIS) is a framework for gathering, managing, and analyzing data. Rooted in the science of geography, GIS integrates many types of data. It analyzes spatial location and organizes layers of information into visualizations using maps and 3D scenes.

With this unique capability, GIS reveals deeper insights into data. Geographic Information Systems.
