During the past decades the publication of papers interest related to the use of geographical information systems (GIS) and/or remote sensing (RS) and of particular interest to veterinary parasitology veterinary followed an exponential trend. The use of GIS and RS is now generally accepted by the scientific community as a major tool contributing to the understanding of epidemiological processes sensu lato: disease –vector –host –environment. Nevertheless, whilst most people now are aware of the… Expand

An example of decision support for trypanosomiasis control using a geographical information system in eastern Zambia.
TLDR
A decision-support framework based on a geographical information system to identify areas of high priority for the control of tsetse and trypanosomiasis in the common fly belt of eastern Zambia is described. Expand
Geographical information systems for studying the epidemiology of cattle diseases caused by Theileria parva
TLDR
The potential value of geographical information systems in studies of disease epidemiology and control is discussed, with examples of how sensitivity may be enhanced by the inclusion of additional variables. Expand
The spatial pattern of trypanosomosis prevalence predicted with the aid of satellite imagery
TLDR
The paper shows how trypanosomosis prevalence and packed cell volume (PCV) map displays may be predicted from correlations between representative field data and environmental and satellite data acquired from the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and Meteosat platforms.

TLDR
Analysis of past and recent animal and human trypanosomiasis data from south-east Uganda supports the suggestion of the importance of cattle as a reservoir of the human disease in this area; mean infection prevalences in both human and animal hosts rise and fall in a similar fashion over the same range of increasing vegetation index values.

TLDR
Using statistical pattern-matching, the combination of RS temperature indices and NDVI successfully predicts certain temporal features essential for the transmission of tick-borne encephalitis virus, which translate into a spatial pattern of disease foci on a continental scale. Expand
A geographic information system forecast model for strategic control of fasciolosis in Ethiopia.
TLDR
Results suggest that the model can be extrapolated to all CPSZ in the country and adapted for use in control of other vector-borne diseases of economic and public health importance. Expand
A geographic information system on the potential distribution and abundance of Fasciola hepatica and F. gigantica in east Africa based on Food and Agriculture Organization databases.
TLDR
Results indicate that monthly forecast parameters, developed in a GIS with digital agroecologic zone databases and monthly climate databases, can be used to define the distribution range of the two Fasciola species, regional variations in intensity and seasonal transmission patterns at different sites.

TLDR
The importance of local environmental and geographic characteristics in the Ihosy region such as proximity to roads and water were assessed by spatial analysis in order to construct a predictive model of Schistosoma mansoni endemicity, and Rice-field surfaces were statistically linked with abundance of vectors evaluated by entomological parametres. Expand
A contribution towards simplifying area-wide tsetse surveys using medium resolution meteorological satellite data
TLDR
The results confirm the potential of satellite data application and multivariate for the prediction of the tsetse distribution and abundance and suggest that in addition to the use of contemporary training data and predictor variables, training predicted data sets should refer to the same eco-geographic zone. Expand
Univariate analysis of tsetse habitat in the common fly belt of Southern Africa using climate and remotely sensed vegetation data
TLDR
A range of multivariate techniques are compared for making predictions about the distribution of tsetse species in the same region with respect to single environmental variables in southern Africa. Expand
