Advances in lifestyle sensing, geo-tagged big data and related technologies are helping us better understand the highly complex, multifactorial nature of overweight, obesity (OO) and type 2 diabetes (T2D), in our quest to design more effective public health interventions for the control and prevention of these conditions. This Int J Health Geogr collection showcases innovations in geospatial lifestyle and food environment research and practice in the context of OO and T2D, going beyond conventional research study designs and approaches in this field.
