ArcGIS Exercise: Dengue Outbreak Analysis using Spatial Statistics

Description: The course "Dengue Outbreak Analysis Using Spatial Statistics" is designed to give you a basic understanding of how to apply ArcGIS geographic information systems tools to analyze and map the geographic and temporal distribution of dengue-positive households and mosquito trap counts relative to other population and environmental datasets in order to monitor, quantify, and understand the spatial diffusion of the disease and its vectors during a Dengue outbreak scenario.  It is an exercise in tutorial format, with step-by-step instructions utilizing data for the island of Oahu.
