This project was compiled for the BSc (Honours) in Computing program, at the National College of Ireland. The purpose of this project is to analyse Automated External Defibrillator (AED) distribution in every village/town across Leinster, Ireland. The result of the project identifies high priority areas in Leinster that with the inclusion of an easily accessible AED could help reduce mortality rates. High priority areas are identified by analysing the characteristics of each area that include Population, the breakdown of the Population, the distance to the nearest emergency service station in kilometres, the number of heart related deaths and the number of existing AED’s in the area.

The system for the statistical analysis consists of a database for storing and analysing real data retrieved from the National Ambulance Service (NAS), Dublin Fire Brigade (DFB) and Central Statistics Office (CSO). The data was analysed using R programming language in RStudio. Finally, the system provides the results of the analysis through Visualisations and Representations for the end-user to consume.
