SaTScan - Software for the spatial, temporal, and space-time scan statistics
Purpose SaTScan™ is a free software that analyzes spatial, temporal and space-time data using the spatial, temporal, or space-time scan statistics. It is designed for any of the following interrelated purposes: Perform geographical surveillance of disease, to detect spatial or space-time disease clusters, and to see if they are statistically significant. Test whether a disease is randomly distributed over space, over time or over space and time. Evaluate the statistical significance of disease cluster alarms.

Spatial methods and tools - ASU’s GeoDa Center for GeoSpatial Analysis and Computation, a research unit closely affiliated with the School of Geographical Sciences and Urban Planning, develops PySAL, an open source library of computational tools for spatial analysis. PySAL grew out of a collaborative effort spearheaded by Professor Sergio Rey and Luc Anselin, Walter Isard Chair and Director of the School of Geographical Sciences and Urban Planning. The project integrates two analytical tools, STARS and PySpace, that were developed separately by the two researchers prior to their arrival at ASU. PySAL provides a suite of spatial analytical methods that developers can incorporate into their own application development, and that spatial analysts may customize to further their research.

Classics - John Snow: The London Cholera Epidemic of 1854 It wasn't until 1854 that Cholera struck England once again, that Snow was able to legitimate his argument that Cholera was spread through contaminated food or water. Snow, in investigating the epidemic, began plotting the location of deaths related to Cholera (see illustration). At the time, London was supplied its water by two water companies. One of these companies pulled its water out of the Thames River upstream of the main city while the second pulled its water from the river downstream from the city. A higher concentration of Cholera was found in the region of town supplied by the water company that drew its water form the downstream location.

Lesson 5: Interpolation - From Simple to Advanced Printer-friendly version Introduction In this lesson, we will examine one of the most important methods in all of spatial analysis. Frequently data are only available at a sample of locations when the underlying phenomenon is, in fact, continuous and, at least in principle, measurable at all locations. The problem, then, is to develop reliable methods for 'filling in the blanks.' The most familiar examples of this problem are meterological, where weather station data are available, but we want to map the likely rainfall, snowfall, air temperature, and atmostpheric pressure conditions across the whole study region.

SAGES: A Suite of Freely-Available Software Tools for Electronic Disease Surveillance in Resource-Limited Settings Public health surveillance is undergoing a revolution driven by advances in the field of information technology. Many countries have experienced vast improvements in the collection, ingestion, analysis, visualization, and dissemination of public health data. Resource-limited countries have lagged behind due to challenges in information technology infrastructure, public health resources, and the costs of proprietary software. The Suite for Automated Global Electronic bioSurveillance (SAGES) is a collection of modular, flexible, freely-available software tools for electronic disease surveillance in resource-limited settings. One or more SAGES tools may be used in concert with existing surveillance applications or the SAGES tools may be used en masse for an end-to-end biosurveillance capability.

National Atlas home page The National Map is now offering a collection of small-scale datasets that can be downloaded for free. Although the 1997-2014 Edition of the National Atlas of the United States was retired in September 2014, The National Map recognizes the importance of continuing to make a collection of the small-scale datasets, originally developed for the National Atlas, available to users. Small-scale maps have an advantage over large-scale maps when there is a need to show a large area in a single view. This makes small-scale maps an ideal solution for scientists, decision-makers, and planners needing to provide a geographical context for the research projects. Generally, certain geographical and feature details found in large-scale maps are limited or omitted in small-scale maps.

International Programs - Information Gateway Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) 1. What is the International Data Base? The International Data Base (IDB) offers a variety of demographic indicators for countries and areas of the world with a population of 5,000 or more. World and Region demographic indicators in the IDB, including population totals, exclude the populations of countries and areas with fewer than 5,000 people. The IDB has provided access to demographic data for over 25 years to governments, academics, other organizations, and the public.
