Epidemiology seeks to establish associations between exposure risk as well as condition which are spatially dependent. These attempts fall by natural means within the domain of issues requiring use of spatial evaluation together with the answer, then GIS along with other spatial analysis programs are thus recognized as providing likely transformational capabilities for Public health efforts and epidemiology. The particpants in the training on remote sensing and GIS for public health will even develop statistical data analysis abilities.

Duration: 10 Days

Who Should Attend?

The program is targeted at people working with health data which have no experience by using GIS but would love to find out just how it could be used in the work of theirs.

Course Objectives

• In order to produce Understanding on the various parts of a GIS as well as the job GIS plays in solving public and epidemiological health issues.
• To provide to individuals all data related facets of a GIS, like the information models in GIS, data visualization, data editing, data input, metadata and controlling a spatial database.
• To Handle innovative analyses of geographical information with particular reference to epidemiological associated issues
• Establish understanding on how you can work with spatial GIS and data techniques to solve public health problems and epidemiology.
• In order to introduce participants  to data capture, input, display and manipulation by GIS

• In order to demonstrate In order to individuals, utilization of GIS within mapping overall health amenities along with projects.
