HRSA Data Warehouse Map Services

Map and feature services provide a web-based method for end users to access geographic (map) data. The HRSA Data Warehouse (HDW) map and feature services provide access to the spatial data available in the HDW. Services include HRSA data as well as additional layers, such as state and county boundaries, that help establish the geographic context of HRSA-specific data. Map layers can be directly viewed with ArcGIS for Desktop Software or through custom applications using the service's REST or SOAP endpoints.

The services can be used to include data from the data warehouse in custom maps developed with desktop or web-based mapping software. These services allow users to:

  • Include HDW data layer(s) in custom-created maps
  • Query and filter the data by location or attribute value
  • Add data attributes to the existing data
  • Select the symbols used to represent map data in each layer
  • Create custom feature labels

List of Feature Services:

Feature Service Description
Area Health Education The Area Health Education Centers (AHEC) Program enhances access to high quality, culturally competent health care through academic-community partnerships to ultimately improve the distribution, diversity, and supply of the primary care health professions workforce who serve in rural and underserved health care delivery sites. The AHEC Program awardees subcontract with community-based AHEC centers in one or more regions of a state. Along with state and local partners, the AHEC programs and centers: (a) recruit and train students from minority and disadvantaged backgrounds into health careers; (b) place health professions students in community-based clinical practice settings - with a focus on primary care; (c) promote inter-professional education and collaborative teams to improve quality of care; and (d) facilitate continuing education resources and programs for health professionals - particularly in rural and underserved areas. This feature service provides information on the Area Health Education Centers (AHEC) Program. The layers can be directly viewed with ArcGIS for Desktop Software or through custom applications using the service's REST or SOAP endpoints.

The layers can be directly viewed with ArcGIS for Desktop Software or through custom applications using the service's REST or SOAP endpoints.
Medically Underserved Areas/Populations The Division of Policy and Shortage Designation (DPSD) in the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) Bureau of Health Workforce (BHW) develops shortage designation criteria and uses this criteria to decide whether or not a geographic area or population group is a Health Professional Shortage Area (HPSA), Medically Underserved Area (MUA), or Medically Underserved Population (MUP). This service provides information on Medically Underserved Areas (MUA) and Medically Underserved Population (MUP). The layers can be directly viewed with ArcGIS for Desktop Software or through custom applications using the service's REST or SOAP endpoints.
