PADmap is coming!

Posted by | 14 Mar 2024


PADMap website is under construction!

Scottish Government and St John Scotland have confirmed funding to enable the PADmap web portal. This website, to be built by Daysix ( will allow individuals, communitites and decision makers to see mathematically optimised location suggestions for the placement of public access defibrillators.

This website will build on the work already done by Ben Leung (Tim Chan’s group – Centre for Analytics and AI Engineering at the University of Toronto) and Diane Lac to build the optimisation model and gather data from potential users to guide design.

PADmap should be completed by the end of Q2 2024.
