The Hum Map and Database has had a Major Update (more than 10000 entries now)

The update just completed, and we now have more than 10000 map and data points. This was a huge update, and no doubt there will be some issues. If you entered data, feel free to look for your own location and let me know if there are problems. Low quality data, spam, and non-sequiturs still get past me from time to time, so feel free to surf around the Map and Database with an eye for spotting such problems.

Note: there are some folks who insist on using latitude and longitude in traditional format for their location, which will not geocode correctly. If you of an online tool that will convert these to Google geocodable points, then please send me that link. Glen.

    A very powerful, versatile and user-friendly tool.

    Dear Dr. MacPherson,
    You should really import this data into a mapping/GIS program and index the entries to population density. The raw pin density tells you relatively little about geographic dispersion trend without factoring in where the people are. Assuming that both sensitivity to the phenomenon, and propensity to seek out your website and make a report are both statistically rare, it’s important to start by normalizing the incidence. If your theory is correct (VLF) then the nodes should be large swatchs of geography, thusk you could use a fairly large geographic polygon in order make sure your sample is sufficient, n cases per 10,000 for example.

    • Good idea, which I’ve already done (at least in terms of a density map overlay). You can find a post on that topic within this blog. Do you have the technical skills to do what you are suggesting regarding GIS? Glen.
