Health care GIS
In developing countries there is an increased need to track diseases and control outbreaks before they progress to epidemics. It is also vital to develop an understanding of historical disease patterns so that future episodes can be predicted.
Health care GIS combines data from public hospitals (currently available only as hard files). Our goal is to track diseases geographically in an online manner, identifying relating occurrence of diseases for local communities. This enables the GIS to identify high-impact locations that need immediate medical attention.
