By P. A. Durr, A. C. Gatrell

Using geographical info structures (including distant sensing) and spatial research in public healthiness is now frequent. Its value and power for the tracking of animal ailments hasn't ever been better with the new outbreaks of BSE and Foot-and-Mouth sickness. GIS and Spatial research in Veterinary technological know-how is the 1st booklet to study how such practices should be utilized to veterinary technological know-how. subject matters coated contain the appliance of GIS to epidemic disorder reaction, to better half animal epidemiology and to the administration of natural world ailments. It additionally covers the parallels with human well-being and spatial information within the biomedical sciences.

Sample text

In the wet–dry tropics, a common landscape is the gallery forest, which is characterized by a band of evergreen trees alongside permanent watercourses, particularly rivers. At a distance, the vegetation is not sufficient to maintain a closed forest, and the landscape becomes one of a typical savannah, with single trees interspersed amongst groundcover of seasonal grass. From an aeroplane, such a landscape may resemble that shown in Colour Plate 4a to the human eye, the visible colour and reflected intensity being combined (processed) in the brain to make identifiable the three dominant kinds of land cover making up this landscape.

This revisit frequency has an immense advantage in overcoming one of the greatest problems with satellite remote sensing – that of loss of useful data when an area is obscured by cloud cover. This is particularly important in humid areas, where many passes may be needed to build up cloud-free composite images. The problem with such Landsat composites is that they may represent different seasons, and the vegetation land-cover may have change substantially with the seasons. For diseases that have a strong seasonal component, as is the case with many vector-borne diseases, such as trypanosomiasis and East Coast fever (see Chapter 6), the need to obtain information about seasonal changes generally outweighs the need for high spatial resolution.
