Glasgow Health Map

Use this map to explore the geographical distribution of disease across Glasgow. Click here to open the map in a new window.

Use the ‘visible layers’ button to toggle geographical information for each disease, and compare distribution against data from the Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation. The map can be launched full screen; zooming and panning across the map is controlled via your mouse or the onscreen controls.

The visualisation plots the following open data:

  • Hospital admissions for coronary heart disease
  • New registration of patients with lung cancer in both sexes
  • Hospital admissions for cerebrovascular disease in both sexes including stroke
  • Deprivation data from the Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation.

(Darker areas on the map represent higher rates of patients/levels of deprivation for data zones per 100,000 members of the population.)
