Observing the successful experience of Taiwan Center for Disease Control which applied SuperGIS software to the study of disease distribution and medical resources management, the Department of Virology in National Institute of Infectious Diseases consulted with Information & Science Techno-System Co., Ltd, SuperGeo’s reseller in Japan, to install SuperGIS Desktop 3, which supports the researchers to learn more from the distribution of infectious viruses and diseases by GIS technologies.
SuperGIS Desktop 3 classifies and visualizes complex disease data on map layers, assisting the researchers in the surveillance and management of diverse virus information. The attribute data can also be displayed clearly in dissimilar locations in unique colors, so that the officials can watch the prevention result and cure rate easily. Further medical measures and policies can therefore be designed in a systematic way.
National Institute of Infectious Diseases, Japan, is also discussing advanced analysis and application by SuperGIS technologies with Information & Science Techno-System Co., Ltd. The next step would be WebGIS solutions for the public to query medical information in real time.
