The Ghost Map of BroadStreet
John Snow’s statistical mapping of the London city Broad Street Cholera outbreak in 1854 is considered, by many, to be a community health milestone, marking the beginning of modern statistical epidemiology. At BroadStreet, we’re revolutionizing John Snow’s vision of community health with cutting edge data visualization and data science. Much like John Snow, we recognize the foundation of healthy communities is built with handcrafted design, great data science, and a caring community.
