Using GIS Network Analysis to link displaced DUI clients to services
Track: Public Health
Authors: James Martinez, Jessica Blackwood, Margarita Melgoza
Active and closed DUI sites were geocoded onto a L.A. County basemap and linkage of 310 displaced clients to services based on the nearest alternative site from their homes. The absence of DUI diversion services threatens to burden communities and the recovery of individuals referred by the courts. Automating processes using GIS Network Analysis methods optimizes the planning, prevention, and implementation of DUI intervention services under different geographic demands.
