GIS Training

Building GIS Capacity for Chronic Disease Surveillance

The training content on this page comes from the GIS Surveillance for Heart Disease, Stroke, and Other Chronic Diseases in State and Local Health Departments project. See highlights of the project, including maps that demonstrate how the state health departments used their GIS skills.

The geographic information systems (GIS) trainings are designed for public health professionals with little to no experience using GIS.

GIS Training Curriculum

These materials were developed collaboratively for selected state health departments under the guidance of the Children’s Environmental Health Initiative (CEHI) at Rice University, with input from participating states and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
