Abstract:

"High quality content by Wikipedia articles! Geographic Information Systems, or increasingly Geographic Information Science, centers around combining computer mapping capabilities with addition database management and data analysis tools. commercial GIS systems are very powerful and have touched many applications and industries, including environmental science, urban planning, agricultural applications, and others. Public health is another focus area that has made increasing use of GIS techniques. A strict definition of public health is difficult to pin down, as it is used in different ways by different groups. In general, public health differs from personal health in that it is focused on the health of populations rather than of individuals, focused more on prevention than on treatment, and operates in a mainly governmental context. These efforts fall naturally within the domain of problems requiring use of spatial analysis as part of the solution, and GIS and other spatial analysis tools are therefore recognized as providing potentially transformational capabilities for public health efforts."--Page 4 of cover.
