Spatial analysis for epidemiology

Graham, A.J., Atkinson, P.M. and Danson, F.M. (2004) Spatial analysis for epidemiology Acta Tropica, 91, (3), pp. 219-225. (doi:10.1016/j.actatropica.2004.05.001).

Remote sensing, geographical information systems (GIS) and spatial analysis provide important tools that are as yet under-exploited in the fight against disease. As the use of such tools becomes more accepted and prevalent in epidemiological studies, so our understanding of the mechanisms of disease systems has the potential to increase. This paper introduces a range of techniques used in remote sensing, GIS and spatial analysis that are relevant to epidemiology. Possible future directions for the application of remote sensing, GIS and spatial analysis are also suggested.
