This map is part of my job as a regional epidemiology. The maps that I do not I need to be especially beautiful and attractive but above all must be well understood by doctors and health facilities. Despite the "normality" of the map shown here is hidden behind a long job of standardizing data, geocoding, statistical analysis, use of dispersion models.
I want to show how the pollution of two major roads (blue lines)have an effect on the distribution of the asthmatic disease . The purple patches are the Kernel Density of cases of disease that it can be seen along the lines of highways.
In the second image shows a model of critical traffic on local roads and the pink circle defines the standard ellipse that expresses both the degree and direction of dispersal.
The analysis was conducted on the territory of the Province of Verona, Italy.
I hope you enjoy my work which is an alternative way to use the GIS tools. Italy is not the best place to conduct such studies, due to a general lack of funds and investments in research, especially for a lack of trust in young students like me. Politicians are too busy trying to defend themselves by personal problems, as these days that see Berlusconi defend himself against the child prostitution. For this reason I hope that between you there is interest in my work and there is someone willing to offer some kind of opportunity.
