Disease Control Geographic Information System for CDC, Taiwan

Center for Disease Control (CDC), Taiwan has developed a GIS system to monitor and control diseases and offer information to all medical organisations and the public. Named Disease Control GIS, the system includes Condition Reporting System and Phthisis Reporting System for more agencies to record different information through GIS for research analysis and control. The goal of the system is to present disease information through electronic maps for display and manipulation. The system also includes the analysis of clustering diseases, which displays the regions and degrees of clustered infections for the work of disease prevention. A Web-based Internet search platform is also included, combining vector maps and satellite images to display more accurate map information. In addition, the platform is fast and easy to access, providing real-time disease geographic information.
