GIS Bulletin


The Epigenesis / CaribVET GIS Bulletin for Animal Health Surveillance

Starting from February 2015, a GIS Newsletter is distributed on a monthly basis amongst the members of the CaribVET network and to any person interested in learning more about geographical data, Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and applications. The main topic of these newsletters will be the use of GIS for animal health surveillance. The objective is to give a beginners introduction to what a GIS is and where and when it can be used. As this is not an official GIS course, the outline is not fixed and the content can be adapted to demands posed by emerging developments.

This is expected to help anyone interested or involved in surveillance data management & analysis whether you want to refresh your skill or to get started with GIS.
