Geohealth is the integration of geographic information, technologies and spatial concepts with epidemiology. Health and disease is complex and requires a dynamic approach to understanding the drivers behind the patterns that we see. Geospatial technologies and GiScience play a vital role in visualizing where and when diseases occur in space and time, understanding why they may be prevalent, who may be affected and how to potentially address the problem. Here at ITC we have developed a collaborative research and learning environment that enables us to address a variety of health and disease issues all over the world (see publications).
