  • Metabolic GIS

    Overview

    This project aims at developing an innovative participatory medicine infrastructure by integrating biomedical sensors, geospatial and positional technologies and Web 2.0. This infrastructure enables patients to communicate, to their health professionals, information about their illnesses, and seek advice. The infrastructure empowers public health planning authorities and primary caregivers to utilise a real-time surveillance system to track current and local medical conditions, and provides sickness information to raise the public awareness.

    Relationship of participatory medicine to Web 2.0; Positioning technology; Web mapping; Biomedical sensors

  • Can we rely on online maps?

    Overview

    For the companies such as Google that maintain online maps, the authoritative sources of geographic data are commercially expensive so they tend to use crowd-sourced geographic data in these maps. The public is increasingly using these online maps, nevertheless, the quality and integrity of the data in the maps is not fully known as they are created by an untrained crowd. Yet, the online maps have the potential to contribute to fatal errors particularly in emergency situations. While the use of theses maps by the public is unavoidable, the development of an approach to facilitate the automatic validation of the data in these maps forms the foundation of the proposed study mission.
