Hospital information in Google Earth/Arc GIS Explorer
Construction projects underway at hospital facilities and SPC/NPC ratings of hospital buildings.
- Size of the icon is scaled to the total costs of projects underway at the hospital facility.
- Hospital names are visible only when the mouse or cursor hovers over an icon. NOTE: This functionality is not available in ArcGIS.
- Hospital facilities are grouped by county; the hospital facilities in a county can be turned on or off in the sidebar for the desktop version.
- If you click on an icon, a text box will open which shows details of projects underway at the hospital facility and SPC/NPC ratings of buildings at the site.
- The text box has a hyperlink to the hospital facility site plan which shows the locations of the buildings at the site and also has a hyperlink to look up facilty detail and license information.
- The hospital and building numbers are hyperlinked to the building information in eCA (eServices Portal Citizen Access - OSHPD′s project logging system). The application information table (under the More Details tab), facility information (under the More Details tab), and related projects associated with the selected building number are available on the eCA page. It is even possible to view the related project information (expand the Related Project tab and click to view the hyperlinks) from this building information page.
- Information on projects and SPC/NPC ratings of buildings are based on the date cited in the text box.
You can also access the facility information through the Google Earth/ArcGIS Explorer table of contents (desktop version only):
- Open the sidebar
- Click or search for the name of the hospital facility (hospital facilities are grouped by county)
- Double click on the name
- Google Earth/ArcGIS Explorer will "fly" to the hospital facility you selected.
When using this data, please cite OSHPD/FDD and this web page.
Google Earth/ArcGIS Explorer software enables you to zoom in beyond the level of accuracy provided in these data layers. Hospitals are located based on the street address provided to OSHPD/FDD.
