Geospatial analytics

A new dimension of epidemiology

Division: Epidemiology | Locations: Worldwide

Dominating the terrain.

Geospatial epidemiology is the use of GIS techniques in epidemiological applications. Using spatial graph databases, geospatial agent based models and cutting edge techniques to analyse risk and disease propagation, plan emergency response and evaluate geospatial factors of health and disease.

Geospatial intelligence in epidemiology offers a new look at existing information. CBRD is equipped with powerful geospatial data analysis capabilities for a range of scenarios. Whether it's predicting service use for an ambulance service, tracking the spread of a viral infection or designing biodefensible cities, CBRD's GIS specialists and geospatial epidemiologists offer unmatched expertise in leveraging spatial information for epidemiological challenges.Jason F., Supervisory GIS analyst

Supported by a cutting edge team of GIS analysts, data specialists and engineers, the geospatial epidemiology team has unparalleled expertise in geospatial analytics and a track record of successful engagements for both public and private sector consumers.

Working with public health agencies, our GIS analysts have been able to increase efficiency, save costs and improve healthcare service provision by leveraging geospatial intelligence and graph algorithms to determine ideal locations for ambulance stations, surgeries and urgent care centres. When resources are limited, geospatial analytics can help provide outstanding services to more people for a fraction of the cost. While our geospatial expertise may have originated in applications in biosecurity and outbreak detection, we have over recent years developed considerable expertise in assisting healthcare providers in provisioning and planning healthcare services to better meet local needs.Gaurav S., Deputy Section Chief for Geospatial Analytics

Using cutting-edge techniques in spatial epidemiology and GIS, our analysts can investigate the geospatial patterns underlying phenomena of health and disease, from outbreaks to chronic illness.

Our experienced healthcare GIS analysts assist healthcare providers by identifying the best locations for healthcare facilities, reducing costs and increasing coverage. Through geospatial prioritisation, coverage can be reduced without increasing cost.

The CBRD Geospatial Epdiemiology Research Team (GERT) is constantly working on the development of actionable advances for faster, more efficient and more reliable computational methods for geospatial epidemiology.
