Track: Cartographic Design
Authors: Ana Lopez-De Fede, Kathy Mayfield-Smith, John Stewart
First introduced in ArcUser Winter 2008, ring maps have been used by MPR to create visually appealing, information-rich displays of multivariate geospatial health data. Advanced ring mapping methods, including logical variable grouping and multivariate spatial pattern summary, are illustrated; design and utilization challenges are described; and other potential ring mapping applications in health systems planning and evaluation are explored.
