PALMS – Cyber-Enabled Measurement of Health Behaviors in Time and Space

PALMS (Physical Activity Location Measurement System) is an integrated measurement platform capable of integrating concurrently collected data on physical activity data with GPS data. PALMS provide advantages over currently-available measurement approaches and contribute to understanding relationships between physical activity, the environment, and health-related factors at the individual and population level. 

Implemented as a web-based application, it will be able to support data collection and analysis for multiple studies among multiple researchers across various disciplines.
