About the Book

Significant developments in health mapping had been occurring since last decade. This significant trend is changing the static kind of mapping towards the dynamic path. Geographic information has long been associated with healthcare. It has traditionally involved a strenuous process that involves data collection, processing, and sharing stages which conventioanlly rely on expensive technology and expert staff. With systems like Google Earth, there had been substantial democratization of GIS. Geovisualization tools have a wide opportunity to explore complex Volunteered Geographic Information (VGI) without altering or simplifying its rich content. Nevertheless, most of these tools that are widely available are developed to assist expert GIS users to explore scientific data in a standalone desktop application. The system is now moving towards Citizens Science (citizens who act as observers), thereby engaging the general public in the trend, than regarding the field as a specialty. Citizens volunteering information is a kind of phenomena whereby the users of the web are generating the healthcare information for the GeoWeb.
