The Application of Geographical Information System Technology to the study of Aedes albopictus (Skuse) breeding sites and its implication to Dengue transmission (in Lundu district, Sarawak)

Dengue fever (D~ J ana Dengue haemorrhagic fever (DHF) are gaining an ever.increasing foothold in Asia and the Americas. The present Aedes vector surveillance system and the use of "classical" Aedes indices remains an issue to resolve. Geographical Information System (GIS) is thought to be...
