About this Sponsor: By adding a geographic component to data and analysis, Esri software promotes exploring, analyzing, and visualizing massive amounts of information according to spatial relationships. Since most health and human service problems facing the world today exist in a location-based context, geography can play a major role in helping health professionals understand health dynamics and the spread of disease. Health surveillance systems are used to gather, integrate, and analyze health data; interpret disease transmission and spread; and monitor the capabilities of health systems. GIS is the enabling technology to spatially relate much of this information, making it a very powerful tool for identifying, tracking, and responding to disease patterns and health services needs.
