All-Island Regional
Research Observatory
(AIRO)



 

Ireland’s All-Island Regional Research Observatory (AIRO) was initially established as a pilot project with the guidance and lead of the National Institute for Regional and Spatial Analysis (NIRSA) and the National Centre for Geo-Computation (NCG) based in the National University of Ireland Maynooth

 

The initial aim of the project was to provide reliable information through the collection, analysis and mapping of data relevant to the cross-border region. It was aimed to act as a spatial, social and economic databank resource for community, public and private bodies. Since then the AIRO project has broadened its horizon and developed a series of interactive mapping tools for all local and regional authorities in Ireland.

Making data available to the community through easy-to-use data presentation tools

The Institute for Health Policy (IHP), based in the School of Public Health at The University of Texas, contributes to improving public health by developing creative ways to bridge the gap between scientific research, practical programs and policy solutions. The IHP brings its technical expertise and non-partisan analysis to health policy issues, with special focus on the Texas and the Texas-Mexico border areas.

Bowel Cancer Australia
Bowel Cancer Atlas

Bowel cancer is Australia's second biggest cancer killer and Bowel Cancer Australia is a national charity with a vision to reduce incidence, death and suffering association with bowel cancer through advocacy, awareness, education, support and research. It aims to achieve its vision in a number of ways including the development of community awareness and education programmes to increase knowledge about bowel cancer and encouraging participation in bowel cancer screening for the early detection of bowel cancer. Chief executive Julien Wiggins tells us how interactive mapping is helping to raise awareness and encourage local communities to take preventative action.

Marie Curie Cancer Care provides expert care to people with terminal illness at home and in its hospices. Marie Curie has extensive experience in service design; redesigning services to deliver an integrated end of life pathway. The charity is also a leader in end of life care research.

 

Marie Curie’s End of Life Care Atlas was developed with the aim of providing healthcare commissioners with a detailed insight into end of life care in their local areas. Michael Cooke, Head of Analytics at Marie Curie explained: “We wanted to use online mapping software to bring together a broad range of data on end of life care across the UK’s health landscape.”

Mapping health inequalities in cardiovascular disease using mapping software at the Faculty of Medical and Health Sciences, Auckland

InstantAtlas is being used by Dr Dan Exeter at the Faculty of Medical and Health Sciences at the University of Auckland to map health inequalities. Dan is a senior lecturer in the School of Population Health and his current research focuses on the development of deprivation indices using routine administrative data sources. He explains how InstantAtlas is helping him to create interactive online atlases of cardiovascular disease treatment and outcomes.

International Diabetes Federation
Taking the renowned Diabetes Atlas on to the world’s digital stage using an online data visualization tool

The International Diabetes Federation (IDF) aims to influence policy, increase public awareness and encourage health improvement, promote the exchange of high-quality information about diabetes, and provide education for people with diabetes and their healthcare providers.

 

It has a global network of national diabetes associations and is involved in worldwide initiatives as well as those at local level. This means the IDF has to provide evidence of diabetes rates on a global and local scale. One way the IDF does this is to produce an annual Diabetes Atlas – a book of maps covering every country in the world. This presents a picture of diabetes based on evidence from hundreds of studies which have been reviewed by the IDF.

 

The data presented in the IDF Diabetes Atlas is used widely by news media, governments, and international organisations such as the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, and the World Economic Forum. It is also used by health professionals, scientists, economists, policy-makers, and national and international agencies.
