Vector Borne Disease: Risk Mapping

Within the DEVELOP National Program of NASA this project aimed at identifying West Nile Virus (WNV) and Encephalitis (EEE) risk maps for Mobile County, Alabama. Probable WNV and EEE infected reservoir habitats were identified using Terra ASTER and Landsat 4 and 5 imagery. Through combination with census data it was possible to identify areas where a chain of infection is present.
