This book provides a practical, comprehensive and up-to-date overview of the use of spatial statistics in epidemiology - the study of the incidence and distribution of diseases. Used appropriately, spatial analytical methods in conjunction with GIS and remotely sensed data can provide significant insights into the biological patterns and processes that underlie disease Cited by: Format: Paperback.

This book is a great start to the topic of spatial epidemiology. We read it as a required text for a Masters in Epi Geospatial Epidemiology course. The first couple of chapters are great, but the statistical definitions of some concepts are too vague for a researcher learning to apply new methods/5(6).

As the authors mentioned, this book, Spatial Analysis in Epidemiology, is written mainly for postgraduate and postdoctoral students who are interested in epidemiology and spatial analysis; however, it can be useful to researchers in other fields related humans and animals, such as ecology, zoology, Author: Mona Choi.

This book provides an overview of the use of spatial statistics in epidemiology — the study of the incidence and distribution of diseases. Used appropriately, spatial analytical methods in conjunction with GIS and remotely sensed data can provide significant insights into the biological patterns and processes that underlie disease transmission.

With its focus on application rather than theory, Spatial Analysis in Epidemiology includes a wide range of examples taken from both medical (human) and veterinary (animal) disciplines, and describes both infectious diseases and non-infectious conditions.

"Spatial Epidemiology" mixes practical application with theory to provide a critical review of methods, challenges, issues, strengths, and limitations of spatial analysis in epidemiology.

Subsections of the book progress from types of data, to statistical methods, to disease mapping and clustering, then end with exposures and links to health.4/5(1).

Spatial data on vegetation type, land cover, land surface temperature and soil moisture are all examples of variables that are potentially useful in epidemiology and may be estimated from remotely sensed data. A GIS is a series of tools for the acquisition, storage, retrieval, analysis and display of spatial by:   Localization is involved everywhere in epidemiology: health phenomena often involve spatial relationships among individuals and risk factors related to geography and environment.

Therefore, the use of localization in the analysis and comprehension of health phenomena is essential. Handbook of Spatial Epidemiology Andrew Lawson, Sudipto Banerjee, Robert Haining, Lola Ugarte.

Geographical epidemiology can be defined as the description of spatial patterns of disease morbidity and mortality, part of descriptive epidemiological studies, with the aim of formulating hypotheses about the aetiology of diseases.

49 One can identify different branches in geographical epidemiology, which is a reflection of the different needs of public health Cited by:   Spatial Analysis in Epidemiology by Dirk U. Pfeiffer,available at Book Depository with free delivery worldwide/5(7).

Handbook of Spatial Epidemiology explains how to model epidemiological problems and improve inference about disease etiology from a geographical perspective.

Top epidemiologists, geographers, and statisticians share interdisciplinary viewpoints on analyzing spatial data and space–time variations in disease incidences. Spatial analysis makes it possible to consolidate "classic" epidemiology to feed research and parameterization of models.

Marc Souris' book offers an overview of spatial analysis and geographic information systems for health, focusing on. With its focus is on application rather than theory, Spatial Analysis in Epidemiology includes a wide range of examples taken from both medical (human) and veterinary (animal) disciplines, and describes both infectious diseases and non-infectious conditions/5(6).

His particular interest is the epidemiology and control of infectious diseases, and his technical expertise includes field epidemiological and ecological research methods, advanced epidemiological analysis, spatial and temporal analysis of epidemiological data, risk analysis, computer modelling of animal disease, animal health economics and /5(4).

Spatial and Spatio-Temporal Epidemiology is a peer-reviewed scientific journal that provides a home for high quality work which straddles the areas of GIS, epidemiology, exposure science, and spatial statistics.

The journal focuses on answering epidemiological questions where spatial and spatio-temporal approaches are appropriate. With its focus is on application rather than theory, Spatial Analysis in Epidemiology includes a wide range of examples taken from both medical (human) and veterinary (animal) disciplines, and describes both infectious diseases and non-infectious conditions.
