Cochrane for Constituents: Social & Health Mapping
To launch the Cochrane for Consituents project at the Cochrane Collaboration College for Policy at GMU, Luminosa developed a web application showing social and health data for each county in Virginia.
Give Virginia consumers, policymakers and stakeholders a visual tool to compare dynamic health and social data by county, color-coded for range.
Luminosa incorporated public data aggregated by GMU researchers into a new interactive virtual mapping program. These maps show critical issues facing the state, and are divided and color-coded into quartiles so users can see at a glance if a county places in the top, upper-middle, lower-middle or bottom of statewide results for the selected topic. Maps have links to pop-ups showing results for each county in the state and its numerical ranking.
The interface uses 4 tabs:
- Demographic Maps
- Health Factor Maps
- Social Factor Maps and
- Crime Data Maps
Users can generate more than 100 dynamic maps on subjects ranging from a county’s rural population percentage to its fast-food restaurant percentage to its drunk-driving deaths. Features include custom coloring, custom labeling, and one-click exports of the maps and data.
