These maps were launched in May and have been used for other health crises including the cholera outbreak in Mozambique.

Expecting a more straightforward account of the unraveling of this medical mystery, I set this book aside twice in frustration, bored with the author's tendency to stretch /5(K). The principles of disease investigation used by Snow are the basis of epidemiology which is practised today. The maps,diagrams and illustrations are good but I do not like the title of the book "The Ghost Map"which hs no relevance to the investigation of the outbreak.

Most of the categories refer to where the disease affects your body, such as Gastrointestinal for cholera or Respiratory for pneumonia. We also keep track of environmental risks (i.e. beach closures due to sewage) and animal diseases (i.e. foxes found with rabies) to provide you a broader picture of diseases.

Cartographies of Disease: Maps, Mapping, and Medicine is a comprehensive survey of the technology of mapping and its relationship to the battle against disease. This look at medical mapping advances the argument that maps are not merely representations of spatial realities but a way of thinking about relationships between viral and bacterial communities, human hosts, and the Reviews: 1.
