Secondary spatial data are collected by external sources and include administrative data e. Pearce J, Boyle P, Flowerdew R: Predicting smoking behaviour in census output areas across Scotland.
The application of GIS in environmental health sciences: opportunities and limitations.

Informative legend wording and setting suitable map projections are also basic to skilled mapmaking.
Mandal R, St-Hilaire S, Kie JG, Derryberry D. Xiao H, Gwede CK, Kiros G, Milla K. The reconstruction of historical exposure to releases from industries and waste sites is difficult for studies of cancers of long latency. Cartography and Geographic Information Science. Further, the correct and consistent use is aided by protocols such as those already developed by Forsyth  and the ever growing collections of up-to-date web-based resources including the International Physical Activity and the Environment NetworkThe Global Positioning Systems in Health Research Network and the US National Cancer Institute: Measures of the Food Environment.
Geographic distribution of urologists throughout the United States using a county level approach.
These estimates are used in the calculation of cancer rates by federal and state agencies, although some research has shown that they are not especially reliable, particularly county-level estimates for specific race groups .
However, important methodological challenges remain relating to data collection, GIS concepts, and the measurement of the built environment [, —].
Symbol types, color choices, and data classing each affect the information revealed by a map and are best tailored to the specific characteristics of data.
