Ashtech MobileMapper 6 for public health assessment

A volunteer group at the University of North Carolina in Gillings School of Global Public Health, are conducting cluster sampling studies using Ashtech handheld MobileMapper 6 smart GPS/GIS devices to navigate to designated survey sites and collect point specific field data.

The cluster sampling studies are carried out under the auspices of the University of North Carolina Center for Public Health Preparedness Spatial Health Assessment and Research Program (SHARP) in collaboration with the Center for Disease Control (CDC). The study is looking at how the reproductive health needs of women may have been affected by the 2010 ravaging floods in coastal counties of North Carolina.
