It’s been said “If a picture paints a thousand words, then a map paints a thousand pictures.” That’s 1,000,000 words.
Imagine the stories you can tell with maps!
Welcome to the HealthLandscape Blog. In the coming months, we’ll be introducing you to the features and data available in HealthLandscape, the new web-based mapping tool from The Health Foundation of Greater Cincinnati and the American Academy of Family Physicians.
Maps are everywhere, and HealthLandscape gives you the tools you need to create simple, effective displays of your neighborhood, your community, your state, or whatever area is important to you. By combining your data with our ever-expending library of local, state, and national data, HealthLandscape lets you reveal relationships in ways that would not be possible with mere tables and charts.
We encourge you to visit this blog often as we share the creative ways people use HealthLandscape, the new data we gather and publish, and the new features designed to enhance your maps and help you create compelling messages.
Visit HealthLandscape at www.healthlandscape.org and start telling your story today.
