Hospital Accessibility Map
This map shows estimated travel times to the nearest hospital for various medical specialties within the boundaries of a specific country. Travel times are calculated using multiple data sources: OpenStreetMap provides road and infrastructure data while Google Maps APIs provide real-time travel speed statistics.
The legend indicates travel time ranges. Toggle the layers in the legend panel to view estimated travel times for different specialties or groups of specialties such as general surgery, specialized surgery, etc. Hover over a hospital (represented by black circles) to see its name.
Hospital Population Coverage
This map visualizes healthcare access levels, focusing on regions lacking sufficient coverage. The portion of the target population that remains underserved, despite being within the service area of existing facilities, is estimated based on the capacity limitations of each facility.
The coverage layers show healthcare access in green shades, with darker greens indicating more coverage.
The medical desert layers highlight in red areas with high populations but insufficient access, with deep red as top priorities.
Like the Hospital Population map, this shows healthcare access gaps, estimating the percentage lacking access to medical specialties in each area. Hover to see population percentage without access.
Two representations are available:
- QuadTree layers divide areas into subdivisions containing equal populations. This helps identify regions with high population density but low coverage (i.e. smaller subdivisions in shades or red).
- Other layers display coverage by administrative boundaries.
