Health resources are a key element within the EU Welfare State. There is not a detailed infrastructure that gives information to citizens on the health related facilities in Spain, an EU country with more than 60 million tourists per year with a lion’s share of them from other EU countries. For this reason ESRI Spain believes that this is an area where specific data models and geographic contents and layers could be developed with information on health related resources. This project would add value not only to the general public but benefit professionals, private entities and users as well.
The goal of this project is to create a place where anybody can search and view health data in an easy and intuitive way, through geographic information system. This place will be a web portal where all data and resources according to Health in Spain will be geographically represented in maps using Esri technology.
Esri España will provide the fellow a customized training in order to develop the knowledge and capabilities needed for the project.
LONGPOP EXPECTED RESULTS:
9.1 Catalogue of health-related resources in Spain.
9.2 Catalogue of technical documentation and training in the area of health.
9.3 Web Portal for Health and Population in Spain. The goal is to have a comprehensive portal that includes all resources ESRI Spain offers to customers in this area.
