North Carolina Health Data Explorer
East Carolina University
The Health Data Explorer provides access to health data for North Carolina counties in an interactive, user-friendly atlas of maps, tables, and charts. It allows users to select, visualize, explore and download data on major disease mortality, disparities between groups, social and economic factors, and health behaviors. It is produced by East Carolina University’s Center for Health Services Research and Development and Center for Health Disparities Research, using Instant Atlas and Flash.
Report Theme - Health Behaviors – The Health Behaviors Series includes mortality data along with data on health behaviors (personal exercise, consumption of fruits and vegetables, alcohol consumption). This data is taken from the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS), conducted annually by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. BRFSS data is sample data, so it is presented with 95% confidence intervals.
This report was created using the InstantAtlas Double Map Template. This template combines two maps, a table and a scatterplot for data display. It is ideally suited to side by side thematic mapping of two different indicators and exploring the degree of correlation.

Strategic Planning Initiative
Illinois Criminal Justice Information Authority
In the context of promoting “Smarter Solutions for Crime Reduction”, the Illinois Criminal Justice Authority chose InstantAtlas to present a suite of interactive crime data analysis tools in September 2010.
These reports present over 70 indicators at a county level. Annual and 5-year average offense and arrest rates are compared across Illinois for major crime categories. Additional themes allow users to explore data and create maps presenting case filing rates, admissions to the Department of Corrections or to substance abuse treatment programs.
Using the single map report, users can view the data geographically and through time. Data can be filtered by region, judicial circuit or rural/urban county type.
The scatterplot profile allows the exploration of relationships between crime and outcome indicators, exposing major positive and negative data variances from the state norms in individual counties.
