Learning objectives

After completing the course, you will be able to:

  1. Describe the relevance, potential, and challenges of spatial and digital epidemiological approaches to advance urban health research:
    • Review concepts of geospatial data analysis and visualization
    • Describe big geodata social media analytics for public health
  2. Apply robust spatial and digital epidemiological approaches towards addressing important urban health challenges:
    • Analyse mental health outcomes as identified in social media
