Author(s): Maria Diuk-Wasser
This paper describes the use of GIS as a vector control management tool for Orange County Vector Control District (OCVCD), as a result of a collaboration with of the University of California, Los Angeles. The GIS integrates current and past vector surveillance and control information with Orange County flood control and drainage facilities, cartographic, and environmental data. This database is presently being used to more efficiently organize the agency's operations, as well as to analyze existing relationships between vector presence and other parameters, in order to identify vector/disease foci.
