Mapping (& not mapping) Chronic Disease for Healthy Neighborhoods
Presenter: Tim Stallmann, RAD
Copresenter: John Killeen, DataWorks NC
Over the past year, I've been working with DataWorks NC to figure out how best to share newly available data on chronic disease incidence with neighborhoods across the County. Through resident feedback, we've been moving away from maps and experimenting with data-driven illustrations and narrative text. In this talk, we'll share the participatory design process & technical structure of the Durham Health Indicators project, a reactive web app, printed infosheet and workshop curriculum which helps neighborhoods understand how individual conditions like diabetes and heart disease are influenced by factors like access to healthy food, walkability, poor housing conditions, and evictions.

3D as an effective way to communicate spatial information to a user
Presenter: Karel Jedlička, University of West Bohemia
The intention is to present a web based three dimensional solution for communicating (not exclusively) scientific results to wide public. A communication of information from its producer to a user can be done in many ways, which differs in their effectivity. Although a map is a native communication channel for presenting of spatial data, a presentation of spatial data in three dimensional environment is a growing alternative. Therefore this contribution firstly describes existing virtual reality environments used for 3D data presentation. Then a developed web application (http://ng.hslayers.org/examples/3d-olu/) is introduced and described. The application presents effective visualization large datasets.
