On Wednesday, May 27, Dr. Vincent Herbreteau, from the Institute of Research for Development, France, conducted a talk entitled “A Geospatial Approach to Disease Epidemiology: a Focus on the use of Remote Sensing”. Dr. Herbreteau is a health geographer, and discussed his work using satellite and drone imagery to analyse spatial epidemiological trends based on environmental and geographic factors. He described his current project on Reunion Island outside Madagascar, where he has used these remote sensing techniques to analyze leptospirosis outbreaks.
He also described the benefits and challenges of different types of imaging tools and techniques, and the technological analysis tools that exist to support the data analysis. This was a fascinating talk about a topic that is likely to grow in importance as imaging technology improves and costs fall, and the Faculty would like to thank Dr. Herbreteau for his presentation.
Speaker: Dr. Vincent Herbreteau, Health Geographer, Institut de Recherche pour le Développement (IRD), Montpellier, France
