One of the most important areas of services that Geographical Information Systems (GIS) have not been sufficiently implemented to date is to provide health services. The GIS techniques have been used to investigate the lack of correlation between causes and effects, or between different results in different geographic locations. The significant capabilities of GIS are increasingly recognized in the management of health data and in the mapping of health indicators and the impacts of a disease.

Geographic Information Systems (GIS) can be used to investigate health problems, and the factors which create them, and to draw conclusions for the improvement of the supplied medical and nursing care.

The objective of this research is the creation of an online questionnaire using the survey123, to facilitate the recording of health problems of the elderly. The benefit of the survey will be analyzed and correlated with local health problems of elderly
