Spatial and multidimensional visualization of Indonesia’s village health statistics

The University of Pittsburgh has recently come up with an analytical tool to perform a community health assessment (CHA) in Indonesia. Indonesia is a developing country with 235 million inhabitants over 13,000 islands and in order to do an effective CHA, it requires timely and comprehensive information from a wide variety of sources. The school combined a visualization and analysis tool with Geographic Information System (GIS) technology in order to come up with a more efficient way to gather information. The future plan is to implement the use of this tool for other developing countries.
