CARTOGRAPHIC TOOLS FORHEALTH DATA PRESENTATIONPetr Kubicek, Zdenek Stachon, Radim Stampach Laboratory on Geoinformatics and Cartography Masaryk University Edvard Geryk University Hospital Brno Dresden, May 14 2010
Introduction• The cartographic visualization is a useful way for presentationof statistics including health data.• The map can be also used for monitoring and analyzing ofsituation.• Cartographic outputs can be useful for common people, as wellas specialists in health and civil services.• The topic of health data visualization is one of applications wherethe usage of cartographic tools is underestimated.• This paper describes the web portal for medical datapresentation focused on different groups of users.• The web portal contains tools for data visualization withdifferent levels of cartographic complexity (static map x toolfor exploratory cartographic analysis x innovative cartographic„mash-ups“).
BackgroundProject synopsis: – „Visualisation of health data in supporting of interdisciplinary education and public relations (Visualhealth)“, 2008 – 2009. – Project was focused on the development of interdisciplinary relationships on the edge of scientific and medical fields. The main approach concerns to the establishment of educational modules for the visualization of medical data and public relation of above mentioned fields.Funding – Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports.Project partners: – Masaryk University • Faculty of Science, Faculty of Social Studies – University of Western Bohemia in Pilsen • Faculty of Applied Sciences – The University Hospital Brno
Project goals1. State of the art analysis – contemporary health data and their visualization within the Czech Republic.2. Development of cartographic tools for health data and using for visualization of selected diagnoses.3. Web portal for health data visualization and interdisciplinary research.
Goal 1State of the art analysis – contemporary health data andtheir visualization within the Czech Republic.Main results:• Incidence – Prevalence – Mortality for cancer• Prevalence – number of patients living with diagnosis.• Indicator of contemporary and expected health careexpenditures – increasing year to year.• Prevalence data men/woman according to age, diagnoses andclinical stages in regions of Czech Republic for 1989-2005.• Statistical modelling of predicted development to 2015 –estimated cancer expenditures nearly 500 mill. EUR.
Goal 2Development of cartographic tools forhealth data and using for visualization ofselected diagnoses.Main results: – Visualization tools – 4 basic types for different end users. – Based on (Cartography)3 model (MacEachern 1994)
using of map private human-map interaction public low high lowpotential of revealing unknowns high
Static mapsClassic choropleth maps with bar diagrams.
Dynamic mapsClassic maps but generated dynamically from databaseon demand of user.
Interactive maps – TimeSeries toolTool for statistical time series presentation. Userhas possibilities to change the map appearance, tochange region level of map, to animate selectedtime period etc.
Google Earth mash-upThematic maps that uses global map source ofGoogle Earth. Statistical trend in time can besearched in animation.
Goal 3Web portal for health data visualization andinterdisciplinary research.Main results: – Web portal design and development http://zdravi.geogr.muni.cz. – Health data presentation, references to other sources of information. – Interactive and interdisciplinary educational documents.
Conclusion• VisualHealth – 3/2008 – 12/2009• Main pilot output for health data visualization: http://zdravi.geogr.muni.cz• Interdisciplinary cooperation – cartography/GIS – epidemiology – social science.• Synergy with international activities – INSPIRE, ICA, ECHIM - European Community Health Indicators Monitoring.
Memento nádorů gastrointestinálního traktu v ČR Počet nemocných s dg. C15-C26 se v letech 1989–2005 zvýšil z 10 425 na 27 204 mužů tj. o 161 % 9 530 na 22 562 žen tj. o 136,7 % V letech 1976–2006 bylo evidováno 369 582 nádorů GIT, z nich bylo spojeno s dalšími novotvary 12 % onemocnění u mužů a 11 % u žen. V roce 2006 bylo nově diagnostikováno 13 958 nádorů GIT (7 968 mužů a 5 990 žen) na nádor GIT zemřelo 9 714 nemocných (5 389 mužů a 4 325 žen)Nový nádor GIT je průměrně zjištěn každých 40 minut, denně umírá 27 pacientů.
