“Giving members of the Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine access to workforce information using interactive mapping software”


The IPEM’s Workforce Intelligence Unit was set up to give it a credible voice in policy development, the training and education of physicists, engineers and associated services working in all areas of medicine and healthcare. As a leading centre for workforce intelligence the IPEM is able to map demographic, health and services information, across the four countries of the UK, and overlay workforce information. We spoke to Jemimah Eve, Project Officer, about mapping software and how it is being used to meet IPEM’s objectives.


When did you first come across InstantAtlas?


Could you tell us more about this project?

I wanted to use a software mapping tool to provide a visual display that would allow users to search for information, specifically accredited training centres. It important for our members to be able to find out where these accredited training centres are. It is also useful for the IPEM to be able to understand geographical variation to see where improvements can be made in the network of training centres.


What was your experience of using InstantAtlas?

How will you be developing the IPEM’s mapping capability?

Most of the workforce intelligence data we collect and present is only available for members. We are working on maps that will allow us to display workforce data by theme, for example looking at the radiography workforce and cancer incidence.


What have been the benefits of using InstantAtlas?

  • We can now offer an alternative way to look at data which in turn gives us a geographical insight into the workforce
  • We can present much more information in way that is accessible to our members
  • The information can be used and understood by a wide range of individuals who don’t need GiS expertise
