Ghardaïa, central Algeria, experienced a major outbreak of cutaneous leishmaniasis (CL) in 2005. Two Leishmania species occur in this region: Leishmania major (MON-25) and Leishmania killicki (MON-301). The two species are transmitted respectively by the sandflies Phlebotomus papatasi and Phlebotomus sergenti and probably involve rodent reservoirs with different ecologies, suggesting distinct epidemiological patterns and distribution areas. The aims of this study were to establish risk maps for… Expand
Investigation of the spatial distribution of sandfly species and cutaneous leishmaniasis risk factors by using geographical information system technologies in Karaisali district of Adana province, Turkey
TLDR
Developing a predictive model for determining the spatial risk level of cutaneous leishmaniasis in the Adana province, southern part of Turkey, in relation to environmental factors may provide useful information to guide the control programme interventions and prevent the economic loses in the future insecticide applications.

Mapping a Knowledge-Based Malaria Hazard Index Related to Landscape Using Remote Sensing: Application to the Cross-Border Area between French Guiana and Brazil
TLDR
A spatial knowledge-driven, landscape-based hazard malaria index using remote sensing that can be easily produced on a regular basis and might be useful for malaria prediction, surveillance, and control is established. Expand
Satellite Hyperspectral Imagery to Support Tick-Borne Infectious Diseases Surveillance
TLDR
Due to the difficulty of monitoring locally the distribution of infectious agents, vectors and animal host’s, satellite hyperspectral imagery can be used as a complementary tool for the surveillance of tick-borne infectious diseases and potentially of other vector-borne diseases. Expand
Remote Sensing Applications in Disease Mapping
TLDR
The exploration of some of the opportunities presented by remote sensing to disease mapping and epidemiology is still unfolding as new opportunities are being presented. Expand

Abstract Cutaneous leishmaniasis (CL) is a zoonotic infectious disease caused mainly by Leishmania infantum Nicolle, 1908 (Kinetoplastida: Trypanosomatida) transmitted by dominant species PhlebotomusExpand
Review of remotely sensed data products for disease mapping and epidemiology
TLDR
A catalogue of indices from ecological studies that could be used as variables in disease mapping and epidemiology are presented and remotely sensed data products related to climate, meteorology, land use/cover, cartography and urban mapping are explored as potential indices for disease mapping. Expand
Distribution pattern of anthroponotic cutaneous leishmaniasis caused by Leishmania tropica in Western Afghanistan during 2013-2014.
TLDR
Findings suggest that moist soil and the humidity from irrigated areas found between 700 and 1200m provide suitable breeding sites of Phlebotomus sergenti, the main sandfly vector of L. tropica in Afghanistan. Expand
A time series analysis of environmental and metrological factors impact on cutaneous leishmaniasis incidence in an endemic area of Dehloran, Iran
TLDR
There are need more robust preventive programs in earthquake-prone areas with high temperature and inceptisol soil type than other areas and the SARIMA models showed significant associations between environmental and meteorological variables and CL incidence adjusted for seasonality and auto-correlation.

TLDR
A set of Giemsa-stained smears prepared from skin lesions of the patients suspected to have cutaneous leishmaniasis (CL) in various geographical areas in Algeria provided additional information on the geographical extension of CL caused by L. tropica and L. infantum in Algeria. Expand

A geographical information system-based multicriteria evaluation to map areas at risk for Rift Valley fever vector-borne transmission in Italy.
TLDR
The geographical information system (GIS)-based MCE served as a valuable framework and a flexible tool for mapping the areas at risk of a pathogen that is currently absent from a region. Expand
Leishmaniasis transmission: distribution and coarse-resolution ecology of two vectors and two parasites in Egypt.
TLDR
Ecological niche modeling approaches can be used as a first-pass assessment of vector-parasite interactions, offering useful insights into constraints on the geography of transmission patterns of leishmaniasis. Expand
Climate Change and Risk of Leishmaniasis in North America: Predictions from Ecological Niche Models of Vector and Reservoir Species
TLDR
It is predicted that climate change will exacerbate the ecological risk of human exposure to leishmaniasis in areas outside its present range in the United States and, possibly, in parts of southern Canada. Expand
Modeling habitat suitability for occurrence of highly pathogenic avian influenza virus H5N1 in domestic poultry in Asia: a spatial multicriteria decision analysis approach.
TLDR
This study used multicriteria decision analysis (MCDA) to identify areas in Asia suitable for the occurrence of highly pathogenic avian influenza virus H5N1 in domestic poultry, suggesting that, in data-scarce environments, MCDA provides a reasonable alternative to the data-driven approaches usually used to inform risk-based disease surveillance and control strategies.

Environmental risk mapping of canine leishmaniasis in France
TLDR
The existence of two spatial groups of CanL cases are revealed and niche modelling of these two eco-epidemiological patterns was based on environmental variables and led to the first risk map for CanL in France. Expand
Identification of suitable areas for the occurrence of Rift Valley fever outbreaks in Spain using a multiple criteria decision framework.
TLDR
The objective of this study was to identify suitable areas for the occurrence of RVF outbreaks in Spain using a multiple criteria decision making model based on weighted linear combination of factors in geographical information systems (GIS). Expand
Seasonal abundance patterns of the sandfly Phlebotomus papatasi in climatically distinct foci of cutaneous leishmaniasis in Israeli deserts
TLDR
In both areas of Israel, population densities of Ph. papatasi densities were much higher at the site with moister soil, raising transmission risks of zoonotic cutaneous leishmaniasis. Expand
Spatially explicit multi-criteria decision analysis for managing vector-borne diseases
TLDR
It is concluded that Multi-criteria decision analysis is a powerful tool that offers tremendous potential for use in public health decision-making in general and vector-borne disease management in particular. Expand
Temporal Dynamics and Impact of Climate Factors on the Incidence of Zoonotic Cutaneous Leishmaniasis in Central Tunisia
TLDR
Evidence is provided that ZCL is highly influenced by climate factors that could affect both Psammomys obesus and the sand fly population densities and the pool of Leishmania major transmissible from the rodents to blood-feeding female sand flies could lead to a higher probability of transmission to humans over the next season.

TLDR
This work illustrates that simple ecological methods can assist the assessment of spatial and temporal components of epidemiological risk such as the proximity between rodent colonies and human habitats at the time of outbreaks. Expand
