UNITID held a one day seminar on "Use of Remote Sensing Data in Disease Monitoring" on April 15th 2019.

Remote sensing, the process of collecting reflected or emitted electromagnetic radiation by airborne or satellites sensors, provide a cost-effective means of gathering data over large spatial scales in a repeatable manner. Data from remote sensing has traditionally been used to map features on the earth’s surface and to study their dynamics. However, increasingly these data are being used in health studies such as in monitoring, surveillance or risk mapping, particularly of vector-borne scales in a repeatable manner. Data from remote sensing has traditionally been used to map features on the earth’s surface and to study their dynamics. However, increasingly these data are being used in health studies such as in monitoring, surveillance or risk mapping, particularly of vector-borne diseases.  In this seminar, I will explore the process of remote sensing data acquisition, how this data is processed (giving examples of products) and its application, focusing on understanding disease processes and patterns.
