Geo-Spatial Data Resource Training

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) “Geo-Spatial Data Resource Training”

The courses listed here are free, however they do not offer any AHIMA CEU’s. The first training, titled An Introduction to GIS and Public Health, is intended for users with little or no experience working with GIS. It should approximately take three to four hours to complete. The subsequent three trainings (Organizing Principles, Data Management, and Analysis) are each part of a larger curriculum and may take more time to complete. These trainings have extended information including slideshows, exercises, and data.

The training content on this page is the product of the GIS Surveillance for Heart Disease, Stroke, and Other Chronic Diseases in State and Local Health Departments project. These materials were developed collaboratively for selected state health departments under the guidance of the Children’s Environmental Health Initiative (CEHI) at Rice University, with input from participating states and the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

This GIS capacity-building project was designed to help state and local health departments apply GIS techniques in four areas:

  • Document the burden of heart disease, stroke, and other chronic diseases.
  • Build and strengthen partnerships.
  • Inform and guide policy and program decisions.
  • Facilitate integration and collaboration within and between state and local health departments, with a focus on chronic disease prevention and treatment.

Getting Started with GIS

An Introduction to GIS and Public Health
