Geospatial Health

Geospatial Health is the official journal of the International Society of Geospatial Health (www.GnosisGIS.org).

The journal was founded in 2006 at the University of Naples Federico II by Giuseppe Cringoli, John B. Malone, Robert Bergquist and Laura Rinaldi. The focus of the journal is on all aspects of the application of geographical information systems, remote sensing, global positioning systems, spatial statistics and other geospatial tools in human and veterinary health. The journal publishes two issues per year.

A new multidimensional population health indicator for policy... Geographic disparities of asthma prevalence in south-western... Mosquito habitat and dengue risk potential in Kenya... Potential for spread of the white-nose fungus... Relationship between altitude and lithium in groundwater in...

Vol 9, No 2 (2015): GLOWORM Special Issue

The GLOWORM project was a consortium of 14 leading research groups from various universities, research institutes and small and medium-sized companies from across Europe, comprising a broad range of disciplines such as parasitology, epidemiology, molecular biology, farming systems and GIS.

GLOWORM – as part of the EU Seventh Framework Programme – acted to devise new, sustainable strategies for the effective control of ruminant helminthoses in the face of global change.

In the present issue the latest results of the project are being presented. They focus on the spatio-temporal modeling of parasite distribution and abundance at local, regional and area-wide scales.
