Contents Notes
1. Introduction -- 2. Modelling and simulating the prevalence of vector-borne diseases around the world and efforts for combat and control -- 3. Cartographies and maps of vector-borne diseases -- 4. Spatial data -- 5. Common spatial methods for modelling and analysing spatial and temporal patterns and distributions of mosquito-borne diseases -- 6. Spatial variation risk -- 7. Modelling associations between mosquito-borne diseases and environmental and socioeconomic factors -- 8. Global climate change and modelling the potential distribution of vector-borne disease -- 9. Conclusion. "This timely and groundbreaking book demonstrates how to develop models of vector borne disease risks based on different environmental and socioeconomic variables and to assess the association between these variables and their vectors in a Geographic Information System (GIS) environment. It addresses new spatial approaches and techniques based on location and environment and introduces methods to identify, determine, and analyze the trend, movement, and distribution of diseases and the vectors that transmit disease"--
