Atlas of Environmental Health


The Western Australian Atlas of Environmental Health was developed by Gaia Resources for the Department of Health, with support from the Cooperative Research Centre for Spatial Information.  The initial launch of the system in April 2016 (read our launch blog here) focused on the Medical Entomology module (which in turn has a focus on mosquito management), but also includes the Aboriginal Environmental Health and Water Quality Testing modules, which are yet to be launched.

Our team undertook the design, development and some of the training for the project, all the while working alongside Departmental staff (like we outlined here). The Atlas includes a web based system (built in Django with PostGRES and PostGIS), along with a mobile app for both Android and iOS operating systems.  These technologies are paired with a Help system that is a relatively simple WordPress site, and the whole system runs on Amazon Web Services infrastructure.

Since the launch, the Atlas has been proving to be of interest to Environmental Health organisations outside of Western Australia.  The system will be further developed in 2016 with additional capabilities and additional modules.
