Description


Discover a modern approach to help build healthier communities.

Improving health outcomes, increasing access to health care, and building healthier communities requires a modern approach to understanding health and human service issues that are more complex, costly, and devastating than ever before. Public health service agencies around the world rely on geographic information systems (GIS) technology every day to address the opioid epidemic, homelessness, food insecurity, health and racial inequities, and more. By applying GIS, you too can be better able to prepare for and respond to health emergencies and human crises and build the resilience your community will need for the future.

Mapping Community Health: GIS for Health and Human Services explores a collection of real-life case studies about using geographic information system (GIS) technology to help build communities that improve health outcomes and increase accessibility to health care. A "next steps" section provides ideas, strategies, tools, and actions to help jump-start your own use of GIS for health and human services. Supplementary online resources, including additional stories, videos, new ideas and concepts, and downloadable tools and content, extend the value of this book.

Edited by Christopher Thomas, Director of Government Marketing at Esri, Shannon Valdizon, State and Local Government Marketing Lead at Esri, and Matt Artz, an Esri content strategist.
