GIS Day 2018 Program

Preliminary Program

Keynote Speaker…

Bill Buckingham

Dr. William R Buckingham, Applied Population Laboratory, UW-Madison

Keynote Title: “The Area Disadvantage Index: Using geographic information science to construct and share metrics of neighborhood disadvantage in the clinical setting”

Abstract: Building on a history of disadvantage metrics, largely from Europe, the construction of the Area Disadvantage Index marked an advancement in disadvantage metrics in the United States. This talk will discuss the origins and methods used to construct the index, along with its clinical applications. The development and deployment of the Neighborhood Atlas will be used to demonstrate how geographic information science can further social determinants of health work in the medical arena.

Intro: Bill Buckingham is an Assistant Scientist and co-director of the health geography unit at the Applied Population Laboratory at the UW-Madison. His current research focuses on the construction of geographic based indices of disadvantage and their applications. Bill holds a Ph.D from the Nelson Institute for Environmental Studies with a focus on Health Geography and Qualitative GIS and a M.S. in Cartography and GIS, both from UW-Madison.
