About this Product
This is a visualization of malaria in over three seasons in communities in the district of Obuasi, Ghana. The vertical height of the tokens (above the minimum 3mm wall thickness) show the population of a specific community, and their colour represents how the malaria changes over the three seasons.
Season 1 is mapped to Green
Season 2 is mapped to Blue
Season 3 is mapped to Red.
Communities that show up as primarily black or dark colours have minimal or no cases of malaria reported.
Communities that are very bright or white colours have high incidence of malaria reported over all three seasons.
Communities that are primarily green or teal in colour showed high malaria incidence in the early seasons, yet less malaria in the second or third seasons.
Any communities that show up with a pinkish hue would have increasing incidences of malaria. Using this set of data, however, no communities appear to have this case.
The community tokens generally cover their respective communities either out to a 2km radius or to the nearest adjacent community (creating a voronoi map). They are not indicative of any actual geometry of the communities themselves.
This is created for ENGO 551, Special Topics in Geographic Information Systems, a Geomatics Engineering course at the University of Calgary
