Overview and Data

During this spring semester, I wanted to build on the work I had done in mapping and getting a better understanding of the distribution of health data in Florida, by county. The previously used FL CHARTS website has data available on things related to health, but not necessarily regarding resources. I title this as “health environment” data. This data is available under the Florida Environmental Public Health Tracking tool. The state collects a wealth of information on health, and makes it all public available in the form of .csv files. First, I will walk you through how to locate data on the website and use it to make maps. The above link will take you to the homepage, which provides avenues to all sorts of publicly available Florida health data, this time regarding health environments.
