GISCI IP Location Finder - Geolocation Classics - John Snow: The London Cholera Epidemic of 1854 It wasn't until 1854 that Cholera struck England once again, that Snow was able to legitimate his argument that Cholera was spread through contaminated food or water. Snow, in investigating the epidemic, began plotting the location of deaths related to Cholera (see illustration). At the time, London was supplied its water by two water companies. One of these companies pulled its water out of the Thames River upstream of the main city while the second pulled its water from the river downstream from the city. A higher concentration of Cholera was found in the region of town supplied by the water company that drew its water form the downstream location. After the panic-stricken officials followed Snow's advice to remove the handle of the Broad Street Pump that supplied the water to this neighborhood, the epidemic was contained. Snow's classic study offers one of the most convincing arguments of the value of understanding and resolving a social problem through the use of spatial analysis.
Right MAP Making NACIS: Welcome to NACIS.org | HOME Making Maps: A Visual Guide to Map Design for Geographic Information Systems What Is Color Blindness? - Eye M.D.-approved information from EyeSmart In the retina (the light-sensitive tissue lining the back of the eye), there are two types of cells that detect light: rods and cones. Rods detect only light and dark and are very sensitive to low light levels. Cone cells detect color and are concentrated near the center of your vision. Color blindness can occur when one or more of the color cone cells are absent, nonfunctioning, or detect a different color than normal. There are different degrees of color blindness. Color blindness is usually something that you have from birth but it can be acquired later in life. Next Page: Color Blindness Symptoms
