SYNAPSE – in conjunction with the ROADMAP partners- has developed an interactive Data Cube in 3D, which has been launched today.

The Cube offers a dynamic overview of the ‘landscape’ of data availability in Europe for Alzheimer’s disease (AD) research. It allows the visualisation of the different data sources and how they are able to capture different AD-outcomes together with their relevance for the different disease stages. Users can switch between the perspectives of people with dementia, carers and health professionals.

Enabling the visualisation of the AD-related data availability in different types of European data sources and the intrinsic gaps, has proven to be a powerful tool for the design, planning and validation of the models and strategies used to guide future recommendations to enhance AD research.

Through these efforts, ROADMAP helps address the challenge of how best to inform clinical and health-policy decisions by studying how to build a population-based integrated data environment and enabling its visualisation.
