GIS-powered Vector Mosquito Data Management System to Enhance Public Health

The authority in Taiwan built the Vector Mosquito Data Management System, based on SuperGIS Server 3 and SuperGIS Server Spatial Statistical Analyst to present time-space analyses on maps. The system integrates regional field survey, instant data reporting and other massive relevant references, like real-time rainfall data from Central Weather Bureau.

To predict potential infectious route, officers perform buffer analysis, import rainfall data, and overlay them on road maps to see if there are any specific region needs to take actions right away. Also, the system can list the cases with population information like names, gender, age, and the occurrence date of certain epidemic, etc., so that they can well follow up and control each case, and trace it on the map for effective health management.

The working procedure and solution are as the following:

1. Adopting SuperGIS Server as the Core System.
2. Providing Intuitive and Simple Interface and Workflow.
3. Querying and Analyzing Data with Time, Space and Relevant Conditions.
4. Integrating Meteorological Data with Map Service.
5. Plotting Relation Graphs According to Time-Space Relevance of Each Infected Case.

The epidemic control authority utilizes GIS technologies to visualize diverse data providing officers with mass useful information. As the growth of vector mosquito and infection of diseases are highly related with space, the application of GIS can assist officers to predict and make better decision in advance.
