Public Health GIS Special-Topic Applications (Apps)

Public Health GIS Special-Topic Applications (Apps)

When a basemap or an atlas isn’t enough, the Health Department uses GIS web “apps” that address important public health issues using GIS technology. For example, with apps it becomes possible to:

  • See if cyanobacteria blooms might affect your summertime water recreation plans.
  • Find out whether or not people are reporting the presence of ticks near your favorite hiking spot.
  • Find a Fire or Ambulance Station where you can volunteer to join the Vermont Medical Reserve Corps.
  • Examine Tobacco-related data trends.
