In this, the fourth GovFuture webinar presented by the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) and Directions Media, we look at how improved sharing of geospatial information plays an important role in improving public health.

Our featured presenter is Eddie Oldfield, BA, Director, NB Climate Change Hub at the New Brunswick Lung Association. He will describe his work in coordinating implementation of geospatial interoperability standards to exchange, integrate and visualize distributed health and environmental information. Applications he has studied have addressed chronic illness, public health resources, critical infrastructure, pollution, meteorological information, and pandemic surveillance and control.

Oldfield's current work involves creating a national portal to bring together climate and health resources for decision makers in public health, municipal emergency management and local climate adaptation. The portal will aid in expanding public health heat alert and response, community resilience / disaster risk reduction, and modeling of historical and forecast impacts of climate on public health. The portal will enable decision makers to use diverse data sources through services that implement the OGC Web Map Service (WMS), Web Feature Service (WFS) and Web Processing Service (WPS) standards.

OGC and Directions Media invite you to join us in this webinar. GovFuture's quarterly webinars are designed to help people working in local and subnational (county, province, district etc.) governments worldwide to make the best possible use of their ever-expanding location and geospatial information resources.
