Introduction to Maps
Epi Info™ 7 Maps is a versatile tool that geographically displays data on a map. The Maps tool has the ability to display multiple views from the same dataset. Datasets can be filtered or shown over a series of time using features in the Maps tool. Users can tailor these features to create a customized map containing public health data.
Information displayed in the main map window appears in the form of layers. Data layers exist in the form of case clusters, choropleth maps, or dot density maps. Reference layers add geographical boundaries and markers from shape files, a map server, or KML files. This format allows the Maps tool to uniquely identify and designate display settings from both internal and external data sources. Users may modify or filter map data using the data layers gadget located at the bottom of the main map window.
