Title
Application of space technologies to the surveillance and modelling of waterborne diseases
Abstract

Earth observing satellites, global positioning and geographic information systems are new tools that currently enable the scientific community to integrate ecological, environmental and medical data to develop predictive models for disease surveillance and modelling. A number of investigators have explored remotely sensed environmental factors that might be associated with waterborne disease ecology and human transmission risk. However, health specialists have not been fully familiarized with the capabilities of space technology, and in some cases it has not proved to be the wonder tool that scientists expected. New satellite capabilities and new sensors now allow exploration of risk factors previously beyond the capabilities of remote sensing and put researchers in a position to analyze the effects of environment on disease outbreaks.
