Community Informatics

Led by the Indiana Children’s Health Services Research, this research project explored environmental factors related to the development of childhood obesity. We partnered with the IUPUI Department of Geography to map patient records by linking them to neighborhood-level indicators in SAVI to provide an innovative analysis of how a child’s physical and social environment may affect his or her development of obesity. We continue to support this research by providing data management and GIS, research, and analysis support.
