BACKGROUND Since 1999, the expansion of the West Nile virus (WNV) epizooty has led public health authorities to build and operate surveillance systems in North America. These systems are very useful to collect data, but cannot be used to forecast the probable spread of the virus in coming years. Such forecasts, if proven reliable, would permit preventive(More)
In this paper we show how multi-agent geo-simulation can provide a useful approach to simulate the propagation of epidemics and to support intervention strategies. Using such an approach we developed a system that can plausibly simulate the interactions of mosquitoes (<i>Culex sp.</i>) and birds (<i>American Crows</i>) in the context of the spread and(More)
Several approaches and models have been proposed to simulate the spread of infectious diseases such as West Nile virus (WNV) or Lyme disease. However, these models such as mathematical models have some weaknesses when trying to simulate the influence of geographic features on the disease spread. In this context, we developed a new theoretical model called(More)
