I figure that it's about time I get my feet wet with Geographic Information Systems (GIS). The eventual goal is to render original choropleth maps and compile epidemiological data in a graphic and useful way. Below are a couple of very rudimentary maps I authored with ArcGIS Online. The public feature layer sets seem pretty limited, so I'll probably just start making my own once I learn the software and acquire some relevant samples. I'm also playing around with Quantum GIS, GeoDa, and R. Details to follow.
