We’ve lauched a new website called foodscoremap.com.
Foodscoremap.com allows users to create maps of the food environment for communities of concern. We hope that such a tool can greatly enable food environment policy research, including those aimed at solving food access inequalities.
The site has a quite a few features:
- Mapping (obviously)
- Downloading data (really powerful — access to real data for real research)
- Personalization (select search region, types of food of importance)
Thanks Crystal Dou and Daniel Wu for putting this site together. It’s not perfect yet, but we’ve started a beta test to start getting feedback on the site. Please try it out and let us know what you think.
Foodscoremap.com was created largely from donations. If you’d like to support further development of the site, please click on the “Support the project” button on the foodscoremap.com site.
