Geospatial Data Visualization
Geospatial data visualization is one of graphical form of information visualizations and simplifies understanding of the data/information. It shows the relationship between data of specific theme and its geographic location. This spatial visualization of data increases the ability to explore and understand the nature of data spatially. Maps are the primary outputs used to visualize the information. The visualization of data ranges from depicting point feature like health post, displaying values in administrative units to spatial analysis of a given data such as hot spot analysis of disease incidence. Visualization of the data is conducted based on cartographic techniques such as using shapes, patterns, size, color, and others to denote features. In general this visualization of the data will create an opportunity to identify problems and challenges, track changes, patterns and trends, and perform prediction and forecasting related to a given topic at specific time and place.
Time and place are the two pillars in geospatial visualization. Therefore, National Data Management Center, NDMC at EPHI is producing standardized geographic datasets integrated with health perspective and implement state of the art technologies in the analysis and visualization of the data. This will help planning and decision making process. As a result, this platform supports an interactive and dynamic web maps to disseminate up-to-date geospatial information to users timely.
