Using Story Maps to Create a Health Equity Data Portal
Track: Public Health
Authors: Heather Arata, Corina Chung
The San Mateo County Health System used story maps to create a health equity data portal to visualize nearly 30 health, social, economic, and environmental indicators. The method of embedding story maps within story maps allowed for mapping multiple geographies as well as visualizing non-spatial data. This can be duplicated by organizations interested in developing a tool to visualize many heath equity indicators using different visualization techniques for planning and programmatic purposes.
