GIS Technology Used to Track H1N1 “Swine Flu” Data

…from the Redlands Daily Facts

“ESRI software is being used to track swine flu data.  National and local health departments, including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, have used the Redlands-based company’s geographic information systems technology to gauge concentrations of the H1N1 virus, which the CDC estimated Thursday has quadrupled in number of cases. “The mapping (tool) is very important to the general public and to professionals and researchers because this epidemic definitely has a geographic component and has spread, has concentrations,” said James Pick, a professor in the University of Redlands School of Business who teaches GIS and has studied mortality and disease in geographic regions.”
