Four kinds of data are being collected at different scales:
  1. human demographic (including mobility)
  2. socioeconomic
  3. epidemiology
  4. landscape (mosquito breeding sites, fish ponds, floods, land cover).
We propose to investigate and integrated the entire range of human settlement, migration, displacement, and mobility in disease dynamics.
All four data sets will be compiled in a geographic information system (GIS) to create epidemiological maps and will be analyzed using two methods.
These methods are: (1) multivariate analyses of the rate, extent, and direction of malaria dispersal within each unit, and (2) agent-based models to simulate patterns of malaria dispersal within and across units.
