Mapping Food Insecurity in Cumberland County, Maine

Here's a little bit about this project in the author's own words: "About the project Project description: A variety of public service agencies serving Cumberland County are interested in the nexus of food insecurity with public health and local food systems. But in the absence of easily accessible and consolidated data, it can be challenging to target agency efforts. Geographic Information Systems (GIS) provide a means to describe visually and to analyze data. This project developed a GIS-based framework using open-source data inputs to depict as accurately as possible multiple facets of food insecurity in Cumberland County. The impetus for the project came from a recommendation made by the 2010 Campaign to Promote Food Security (http://muskie(dot)usm(dot)maine(dot)edu/cpfs/). The project was funded by the Good Shepherd Food-Bank and Healthy Lakes Communities Putting Prevention to Work, a health promotion program of the People's Regional Opportunity Program, and was housed at the Muskie School of Public Service. Purpose: The purpose of the project was to cast a broad net for gathering food system related data, to place that data in geographic context by mapping it in multiple ways at the highest level of detail possible, and to make the data easily accessible. An important secondary outcome is the development of a platform for analysis and inquiry. Note: I'm posting this link as the GIS Analyst for the project. Ultimately I would like to get more eyes on the project in hopes that the work will help more folks in the region better understand the available food resources. I would also personally like feedback from the GIS community. I have received some great feedback from the project staff, and those who have been using the project material. I would be happy to get more professional feedback and glad to help others trying to launch similar projects in their regions. My contact: tangodeltact(at)yahoo.com Thank You Corey Gray"
