The British Columbia Atlas of Wellness

http://www.geog.uvic.ca/wellness/

The BC Atlas of Wellness “springs from the ActNow BC initiative, which was introduced in early 2005 to encourage British Columbians to make healthy lifestyle choices to improve their quality of life, reduce the incidence of preventable chronic disease, and reduce the burden on the health care system.”

The atlas, which was created in partnership with the University of Victoria Geography Department, uses the ActNow BC initiative as a framework to present its findings. It consists of more than 270 maps and supporting tables that provide data related to approximately 120 wellness-related indicators for B.C. communities, where positive and negative indicators are offset against each other to give an overall wellness score.
