So, you’re worried about flu season again… no worries, Google is mashing up some cool data products via the CDC to give you a snapshot of what’s happening with the flu trends in your area. The first thing is a tabular chart showing trends over time by area (simply select a State), here in CO it appears that mid-Nov and mid-Feb have historically been peak time. Then, using a map you can browse the relative activity for your region. Finally, there’s even an integrated flu shot locator… simply type in the Zip code of interest and a desired radius and you’ll be presented with locations nearby offering flu vaccines – data courtesy ALA. There’s even raw historical data available for download as well as educational material and the latest news about the Flu. See http://www.google.org/flutrends/
We often take for granted the National Atlas and the online webmapping services provided – like the recently launched National Environmental Atlas. But did you also know that there’s a wealth of freely downloadable GIS data layers available from the site as well? Suitable as basemapping layers for apps at the National level, layers like county boundaries, time zones, congressional districts, Federal lands and many others (climate, environmental, Geology, Transport, Water) are found right here in the Raw Data download Section
