Introduction

Dengue Fever
Ø It is transmitted to the man by the mosquito of the genus Aedes and exists in two forms: the Dengue Fever (DF) and the Dengue Haemorrhagic Fever (DHF), which may evolve into Dengue Shock Syndrome (DSS) (Nakhapakorn, K. et al, 2005). Ø Strategies to control dengue à source reduction, health education and intersectoral coordination Ø The spread of disease is unavoidably spatial (Holmes, 1997)
Dengue Fever (DF) and Dengue Haemorrhagic Fever à Public Health Concern

Introduction

Geospatial Data
Ø Provided by Faculty of Geography, GMU à geospatial data until villages level Ø 1st Plan : GIS and Data Management Unit defined the location of houses visited by field workers and surveyors Ø the needs of geospatial data until Rukun Warga (RW)/Rukun Tetangga (RT) or neighbourhood’s level Ø Participatory Mapping (Quickbird Images) and GPS for PDS surveyà 262 field workers and 32 surveyors

Introduction

Surveyors
Ø Quickbird Images help us, “where we will go today ?” Ø Generally able to interpret the information in the maps and try to match with the real world (field condition), such as: schools, mosques, houses. Ø They know and get the benefits of using GPS and Maps for entomology survey Ø They can use and operate GPS Handheld; waypoint, track and route. Ø Understand and know their working area spatially

Introduction

Field Workers
Ø Learn about Maps: how to make map from delineate boundaries, roads, rivers, creating legend, etc. Ø Understand the importance of Maps in monitoring their activities in the working area. Ø Now they knew more than before and think spatially in their work activities. Ø Waiting for “the real of participatory mapping” ???

Introduction

Next Project…
Ø The geospatial learning in combating dengue fever still needs improvement Ø To explore the potential of participatory mapping as a tool to be used in order to capture the local perspectives on public health in combating dengue fever. Ø The possibility to integrate participatory mapping with consultations or empowerment of the locals of the combating dengue process are also interesting issues for future research.
