Health Heatmap of India
FOR INDIA'S DATA-DRIVEN DECISION MAKING
This is an initial version of the Health Heatmap of India, an open access platform for aggregation, curation and visualization of Health Indicators of India.
How do we collect the data?
The Health Heatmap of India is an attempt to aggregate publicly available health data from diverse sources, curate it and warehouse it in a searchable, queryable format and make it available on an open access platform with a range of visualizations.
Data from various sources like the National Health and Family Survey (NFHS), Annual Health Survey (AHS), Sample Registration System (SRS), the Integrated Disease Surveillance Program (IDSP) and other sources of public data have been accessed, curated and organized on a data model of health indicator - geo entity framework and deployed on the system. Spatial as well as tabular visualizations allow viewing and exploration of the data from different perspectives.
How do we curate the data?
The data on the platform have been extracted from various sources and in various formats. After a first attempt at curation, the data is now available on this portal with source attribution for public scrutiny, feedback and suggestions.
This first version of the platform was developed as a part of the preparatory phase project of the National Mission on Biodiversity and Human Well-Being from October 2019 to September 2020. It is work in progress and over time we plan to enrich the portal with more data and rich visualizations.
