You can learn how to use free and low cost mapping tools to create community health maps through a series of six lab exercises available at the Community Health Maps blog.  The lab exercises take the student through the entire Community Health Mapping Workflow from field data collection through online data presentation. For each of the six labs, you can download an instructional PDF document and a Zip file of data to be used for each exercise.  The topics for the 6 labs include:

  • Lab 1 – Field Data Collection (with either iOS or Android)
  • Lab 2 – Bringing Field Data into QGIS
  • Lab 3 – Combining Field Data with other Organizational Data
  • Lab 4 – Basic Spatial Analysis
