One Health: GIS and Maps

What is GIS?

Geographical Information Systems (GIS) is a computer-based technology used to manipulate, analyze, and visualize digital geospatial data. GIS can display complex information in an easy, understandable way. Mapping health information can show spread of disease, disparities in health care across areas and much more.

You do not have to be an expert in GIS to make maps to enhance projects and presentations. To find more detailed information, quick links to health related GIS data, and interactive maps, visit USask Library's GIS Research Guide, or contact the USask Librarian listed on that guide.
