Spatial analysis of Aedes aegypti activity for public health surveillance

In Córdoba city the surveillance of Aedes aegypti, the vector of Dengue, Zika and Chikungunya in Argentina, has been done regularly since 2011. Even there are general recommendations at international level about mosquito monitoring, its …

Time Series Clustering Applied to Eco-Epidemiology: the case of Aedes aegypti in Córdoba, Argentina

Dengue fever is one of the most widespread vector-borne diseases in the world. The virus causing it is transmitted by Aedes aegypti mosquitoes. The prevention of virus transmission is mostly based on vector control, with vector surveillance as the …

Identifying Favorable Spatio-Temporal Conditions for West Nile Virus Outbreaks by Co-Clustering of MODIS LST Indices Time Series

This study presents the first results of the use of co-clustering to identify potential spatial and temporal concurrences of favourable conditions for the emergence and maintenance of West Nile Virus (WNV) in Greece. We applied the Bregman block …

Regional scale environmental variables complementing a Risk Model of Chagas Disease vectorial transmission

In thIS study we present advances in the analysis of environmental variables obtained from moderate resolution satellite images and their association with infestation indexes by Triatoma infestans (vector of Chagas disease). The environmental …

CAN RECONSTRUCTED LAND SURFACE TEMPERATURE DATA FROM SPACE PREDICT A WEST NILE VIRUS OUTBREAK?

Temperature is one of the main drivers of ecological processes. The availability of temporally and spatially continuous temperature time series is crucial in different research and application fields, such as epidemiology and control of zoonotic …

Analisis de una serie temporal de clorofila-a a partir de imagenes {MODIS} de un embalse eutrofico

Eutrophication is a phenomenon that affects many water bodies around the world. San Roque Dam is not an exception since it has been going through a huge increase in algae concentration. In this framework, its monitoring is a key matter, as is the …

Design and implementation of an operational meteo fire risk forecast based on open source geospatial technology

We designed an integrated platform for early prediction of meteorological fire risk. The system is operative since the end of 2014 and estimates the fire danger index automatically, based on the 72 hours forecast of the Weather Research and Forecast …

Spatio-temporal variations in chlorophyll-a concentration in the patagonic continental shelf: An example of satellite time series processing with GRASS GIS temporal modules

We studied the spatio-temporal variations of chlorophyll-a concentration and phytoplankton blooms in the continental shelf and shelf break of the Argentinean patagonic region by means of a time series of 11-years of MODIS/Aqua level 3 (L3) …
