A geographical information system model to define COVID-19 problem areas with an analysis in the socio-economic context at the regional scale in the North of Spain

The study investigated coronavirus disease 2019 spatial distribution and the socioeconomic context of problem areas over the 2020-2021 period. From the start of the pandemic registry to 2nd December 2021, we recommend a replicable geographical information systems methodology based on geocodification and analysis of COVID-19 microdata published by health officials of Cantabria, Spain's Government of Cantabria, Spain. The socioeconomic framework showed complicated links between COVID-19 cases and the explanatory variables related to household characteristics, socioeconomic status, and demographic structure.

A real-time platform for monitoring schistosomiasis transmission supported by Google Earth and a web-based geographical information system

A basic framework for rapid assessment of schistosomiasis risk was created by combining spatial data from Google Earth® with a geographic information system package, bundling the modules together with an Internet connection into a WebGIS platform, providing a simple framework for rapid assessment of schistosomiasis risk. This WebGIS, the first of its kind in the People's Republic of China's People's Republic of China, is not restricted to schistosomiasis, but can also be used for improving control of any endemic disease in any geographic region.

Measuring Access to Urban Health Services Using Geographical Information System (GIS): A Case Study of Health Service Management in Bandar Abbas, Iran

Geographic Information Systems' widespread use has resulted from the recent dissemination and availability of health services as well as the population's evolving health needs. GIS has been used in public health administration for planning and organizing healthcare services in recent years. Accessibility was assessed by using Floating Catchment Area, minimum distance measurements, and a Response Time accessibility device. Conclusions of the location of populations are not close to public health facilities in Bandar Abbas.

Application of remote sensing and geographical information system in mapping land cover of the national park

The study was undertaken with the aim of providing spatially accurate and timely information on land use and pattern change in Ethiopia's Nechsar National Park, with the intention of mapping landscape cover so that the study could provide spatially accurate and timely data on land use and changing pattern. Remote sensing and Geographic Information System have risen in importance as accurate and cost-effective tools for land cover mapping of an inaccessible area. Particularly for large areas, digital image processing is often used to produce land cover maps from remote sensing reports. LANDSAT 7 ETM+ 2000 data was used to create a land cover map of the study area, Nechisar National Park, in this project. LANDSAT 7 EMT+ training stations were re-defined, ensuring significant separability was achieved for all six bands of LANDSAT 7 EMT+. The Nechsar National Park's satellite image was finally classified using Maximum Likelihood Classifier and five key land class cover, which was applied to classify the satellite image.

Assessing the impact of tourism related development on the natural habitant using a Geographical Information System.

Monitoring tourist impacts in safe areas requires a different approach than that taken to monitor environmental impacts, although some methods may be the same. This paper intends to create a New Environmental Character for the Limpopo National Park by using spatial analysis of land use, tourist attractions, highways, and railways to identify the most affected landscapes, as well as those where visual and audible intrusion are lacking, as well as ones that are deserted, thus providing wilderness experience. For the first time of the LNP in Mozambique, the study attained CEC. In the park's heart and a small strip of the wilderness north of the park, pure wilderness can be found in the park's center and a small portion of the park's north. Before any expansion is made, GIS can be used to determine the impacts that tourism-related infrastructure has on a park.

Monitoring techniques: “StegoGIS: a geographical information system for knowing and preventing infestation risks in cultural heritage”

The GIS aids in understanding the insects ethology in their environment, mainly in flour and semolina millings, in order to establish measurement standards to prevent, minimize, and combat infestation in the cultural property environment. On an "insect point of view," our tactic is based on three main lines: 1- A transverse attack of worms in any type of cultural heritage institution: archives, libraries, museums, historic buildings, and museums where organic material collections and environments are valuable: From an "insect point of view. ".

A Geographical Information System Based Approach for Integrated Strategies of Tick Surveillance and Control in the Peri-Urban Natural Reserve of Monte Pellegrino (Palermo, Southern Italy)

Ticks are bloodsucking arthropods that cause pathogen transfer in rodents and humans. A significant presence of I. ventalloi in site 2 and H. lusitanicum in site 5 was noted, indicating the possibility of animals and people being exposed to tick-borne pathogens. Our research found the importance of tick surveillance in peri-urban areas and the useful application of GIS analysis in vector ecology, as well as the successful implementation of GIS technology in vector ecology; studies on temporal and spatial distribution of ticks linked to GIS-based ecological analysis provide an integrated approach for decision support in public health.

Hospital distribution in a metropolitan city: assessment by a geographical information system grid modelling approach

In Seoul, South Korea's capital, Grid models were used to assess urban hospital distribution. Analytical models were then created using GIS software with the number of hospitals as the dependent variable. Three variables were statistically significant in explaining the variance of hospital distribution for each cell using multiple linear regression and geographically weighted regression models. GIS is a useful tool for analyzing and analyzing location strategies, according to the overall findings. This approach provides a useful source of information for decision-makers concerned about the distribution of hospitals and other health care centers in a city.

A Web-Based Visual and Analytical Geographical Information System for Oil and Gas Data

Massive spatiotemporal oil and gas records have been accumulated with the growth of strategic oil and gas resources. The application of application systems that support the storage and management of the voluminous and complex oil and gas databases is in high demand. We present a series of visual analytic tools that specialize in oil and gas analysis in this paper, as well as a web-based oil and gas data processing, visualization, and analytics tool. Spatial scales and temporal primitives present in oil and gas records are investigated.
