including data availability, data/metadata quality issues, security,
confidentiality and ethical issues, and "spatial illiteracy" among
healthcare workers;
-Relevant standards and technological advances in the context of health
and healthcare;
-Geographic Information Science and the Internet, e.g. online GIS data
warehouses and Internet mapping servers, in the context of health and
healthcare;
-Mobile GIS and location-based services in the context of health and data
warehouses and Internet mapping servers, in the context of health and
healthcare;
-Mobile GIS and location-based services in the context of health and
