World-Wide Human Geography Data
Please join the WWHGD Working Group for an in-depth and relevant discussion on the mapping of infectious diseases and understanding the socio-cultural and climate impacts on the spread of the diseases. We will also investigate the drivers of mosquito-borne disease with a focus on Zika. Our presenters will identify data sources, demonstrate modeling tools, and introduce existing maps related to the transmission, tracking and mapping of infectious diseases. Speakers are being invited from Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs), Academia, International Organizations, Interagency Partners, and US Government Agencies. Our Working Group is a global voluntary partnership around mapping and data. We have more than 3,300 members from over 80 countries, and we help facilitate the exchange of free and open data for all aspects of human security.
These events are an opportunity to collaborate and strengthen the WWHGD community, to share methods, information and mapping data from excellent speakers about new research and resources, and to distribute useful and interesting datasets within the Working Group.
A detailed agenda will be provided to our membership by the middle of May 2016.
