Description

Urban health refers to not only disease burdens and the related disparities in urban areas, but also health services and access to such, health behaviour and lifestyle, and the impact of health policies and practices in urban areas. Geospatial technologies include both the traditional Geographic Information System (GIS) and Remote Sensing (RS) technologies, and more importantly, the recent development in GPS and tracking/locational technologies, location-enabled online services and social media, volunteered geographic Information (VGI), and portable sensors, as well as the advances of such technologies in urban health applications with support from big data and cloud computing. Sample topics include:


Monitoring urban environment exposure and health effects by incorporating geolocated sensors

Modeling spatial and space-time accessibility to health services & food outlets in urban environment (incl. activity spaces)

Impact of the environment on physical activity and lifestyles in urban areas measured through geospatial technologies (e.g. walkability, …)

Use of social media (e.g twitter, foursquare) to understand patterns of utilization of public facilities (e.g. parks)

Impact of location-based augmented reality games (e.g. Pokemon go) in urban environment on individual health.
