GIS Mapping Researcher Intern | Health & Social Care | The City of Edinburgh Council
After six months working for EVOC in partnership with City of Edinburgh Council, as part of the pioneering European project URBACT, I am happy to announce the launch of a Web Map Interface of Older People’s services & activities in Edinburgh.
Finding out about the wide range of local activities and services available for older people will now be just a click away. All of this is supported in a user-friendly environment which allows users to find information by simply checking boxes; identifying items on the map by clicking on symbols, finding addresses and the option to zoom in and out to a street level and more!
The purpose of this map is to help anyone (including older people, volunteers, family, carers or social workers etc) access information of what’s happening nearby. It aims to help older people engage with their local community by making information easily accessible and getting ‘out and about’ as simple as possible.
