GIS and Health
The potential users of GIS for health related analysis and applications are legion. In this edited collection, there are extensive examinations of appropriate methodologies for spatial analysis and spatial statistics in analyzing health data. Chapters explore the links with GIS and consider some of the assumptions and problems associated with such analyses. A range of chapters explore the associations between, for example, air pollution and ill health, and between pesticide exposure and disease risk. The book also covers statistical and cartographic methods for analyzing data for small areas and methods for health assessment needs.
