Mosquito-borne diseases have spatial and temporal patterns, because mosquito density and longevity are based on a number of factors, such as temperature, precipitation and mosquito breeding habitats. Geographic Information System (GIS) and Remote Sensing (RS) and their related tools for mapping and modeling provide new and expanding opportunities for mosquito-borne diseases (MBD) research because they can display and model the temporal and spatial relationships between causes and diseases.
