Abstract

To ensure a high level of human health data protection, the huge amount of data gathered day by day by the physicians of the health service has to be analyzed in an efficient way. The current statistical and numerical methods allow only a limited analysis of these data. In this paper we discuss visualization as an efficient approach for analysis and exploration of time and space-dependent human health data. Furthermore, we describe a visualization system which has been developed for visualizing health data of the German state Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. This system is part of a tele-consultation-system for monitoring of health situation.
