Conquering Time and Space: Effectively Using Weather Data to Assess Environmental Health

Accounting for weather and atmospheric factors (temperature, humidity, wind, and smoke plumes) is critical for environmental health surveillance, but data are usually available at scales that are not compatible with health data. Using new tools, publicly available data, and open source software, weather and health data can be aggregated to meaningful scales for use by environmental health professionals. Discover how programs tracking environmental and occupational health indicators have successfully used these technologies and get a hands-on introduction to the use of these tools in your practice of EH.
