Old stuff

April 24

OK—the final assignment is up on the Assignments page, and it also links to a rubric that will be used in grading the video component. We’ll take a look at those two documents.

Then it’s last call for slideshows (three people), with some time at the end to resolve those, as well as to allow for groups to continue working. Also, if anyone needs to get a quick interview with Tom Wingert (across the hall), he will be in his office till 2:30.

Then it’s a quick overview of some mapping tolls and options that you can explore later. These include:

  • customizing a Google map (go through the process to create your own similar to the one I did earlier with at least La Salle and your organization, maybe Fresh Grocer; add descriptions try drawing a boundary or shape to show the Exploring Nutrition boundaries
  • USDA’s food access mapping tool (again, get your version of the food desert JPEG I posted)
  • BatchGeo with a test file of the Big 5 (post on your Other/notes page; see my Tech Notes page)
  • Many Eyes with preloaded US Census data from Philly (see my Tech Notes page)
  • Google Fusion Tables (know what they are, look at intro)
  • TileMill (need to download it at home)
  • create your won Excel chart from the data at the Community Health database and compare that (ZIPs = 19138, 19141) to the NIH statistics

For the Google map:

  • Broad Street as the eastern boundary
  • Chelten Avenue as the western boundary
  • Stenton Avenue as the northern boundary
  • Belfield and Lindley Avenues as the southern boundary.


And here are links to Jon’s videos of Prof. Henstenburg and Dana Palermo’s visit: part 1, part 2 (note how not planning the background affects the video quality; these might be most useful for narration). Note she is Professor Jule Anne Henstenburg.
