CDC GIS Web Applications

Environmental Health Analyst

The Environmental Health Analyst is an online spatial data access system that provides members of the public health community and general public access to spatial data that is pertinent to the analysis and exploration of public health issues. The Environmental Health Analyst is powered by a GIS datawarehouse hosted by ATSDR/CDC and is enhanced with features that are of key value to members of the public health community. Not simply a "map my house" tool, EHA is uniquely focused on the challenges that are encountered by public health professionals as they investigate public health concerns or simply gather information about a health issue.


Migrant Clinicians' Network HEART

MCN's HEART (Health and Environment Analysis and Resource Tool) is an interactive web based geographic application to support field clinicians looking for information, tools, referrals and services in environmental/occupational health for their migrant patients. MCN's environmental and occupational health program aims to reduce risks associated with environmental and occupational hazards for migrant and seasonal farmworkers by increasing the capacity and improving the practices of clinicians serving farmworkers and their families. Specifically, MCN is trying to (1) raise primary health care providers' index of suspicion regarding occupational and environmental causes of health problems, and (2) provide health care providers with tools and resources to address these health problems. HEART is an important tool that MCN together with the Agency for Toxic Substance and Disease Registry (ATSDR) has developed in order to assist clinicians in the recognition and management of environmental/occupational exposures and illness related to farm work.


Rabies Surveillance Mapping

The Viral and Rickettsial Zoonoses Branch of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in collaboration with the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry's Geospatial Research and Analysis and Services Program have developed this internet-based mapping application as a surveillance tool to help better define the epizootic fronts of raccoon rabies in the southeastern United States . Establishing a near Real-Time Geographic Information System (GIS) to locate rabies cases is crucial for the timely identification of localities in need of further diagnostic scrutiny and to identify key areas where targeted control measures with oral rabies vaccination should be applied, in hopes to prevent the continued spread of this disease among raccoons and other mammalian reservoirs.


WONDER-GATHER Mapping Extension

The Center of Disease Control and Prevention's WONDER is a system that provides a single point of access to a wide variety of CDC reports, guidelines, and numeric public health data. The data sets available via the WONDER portal run the gamut from mortality/natality statistics to behavioral risk factor surveillance counts. The data are inherently spatial; they are collected and reported upon a variety of geographic units at varying degrees of granularity. Thus, it is a natural extension to enable the web-based WONDER reports with GIS-based cartographic displays that may reveal both spatial and spatial/temporal patterns.



The National Center for Injury Prevention and Control is currently conducting several projects that utilize geographic data. The interactive system known as INJURYMAPS is one such project. It uses MapInfo software to provide access to the geographic distribution of injury-related mortality rates in the the United States. County-level and state-level maps of age-adjusted mortality rates can be created for the entire United States and for individual states. Visualizeable causes of death include drowning, falls, fires (including burn related deaths), firearms, homicides, motor-vehicles (including traffic related deaths), poisonings, suicide, and traumatic brain injuries. INJURYMAPS is web-accessible and available for public use on the NCIPC's website.

California Health Care Atlas

California Health Care Atlas is an interactive, Internet GIS mapping application that enables users to find and get information about hospitals and healthcare facilities. The application provides detailed information about hospitals, including license information, finance and utilization data, and annual patient summary reports. Patient origin and market share maps can be created dynamically with the California Healthcare Atlas. Maps can also be printed or saved.


California Nutrition Network

The California Nutrition Network mapping application is an interactive, internet-based Geographic Information System (GIS) that allows users to view and query mapped nutrition data. The application contains a rich set of nutrition and other health related data, including:


Northeast Kansas Environmental Services

The Northeast Kansas Environmental Services (NEKES) organization is a coalition of five county health departments collaborating on environmental and public health services. The five counties are Atchison, Brown, Doniphan, Jackson and Nemaha counties, which are located in the KS Lower Republican and Missouri River Basins in Kansas. For the past 12 years NEKES has offered water quality protection services including single family and small commercial wastewater inspections, private water well screenings, water quality education, loan inspections, nuisance and other reported environmental and public health complaints.

Pennsylvania's West Nile Virus Surveillance Program

In 2000, West Nile virus appeared for the first time in Pennsylvania in birds, mosquitoes and a horse. To combat the spread of West Nile virus, which is transmitted by mosquitoes, Pennsylvania has developed a comprehensive network. This network, which covers all 67 counties, includes trapping mosquitoes, collecting dead birds and monitoring horses, people and sentinel chickens.
