University of Pittsburgh Academic Partner for Excellence in Environmental Public Health Tracking
SOVAT (Spatial OLAP Visualization & Analytical Tool/I-SOVAT) Investigators: Ravi Sharma, PhD and Bambang Parmanto, PhD
Environmental public health tracking involves linkage and integration data sets from various sources. These data sets usually include spatial data (such as zip code of residence, location of an industry), health data (e.g, deaths, cancer cases), and demographic data (e.g., population, age structure, income). SOVAT and its web-based version I-SOVAT are capable of integrating complex data sets into a multidimensional database that can be viewed easily from multiple angles and in visual forms (maps and charts). This software, developed at the University of Pittsburgh, combine advanced data warehouse capability (OLAP) with spatial analysis and spatial display (Geospatial Information System or GIS). Through an easy-to-use interface, even a novice user is able to conduct environmental public health analysis quickly and effortlessly.
