GEOMAPPING OF BRUCELLOSIS CASES IN MALAYSIA FOR 2002-2011

This study examines the use of Geographical Information System (GIS) and describes the distribution of location-confirmed Brucellosis for 10 years from 2002 to 2011 season in Malaysia as reported in Veterinary Research Institute, Ipoh, Perak. The brucellosis postitive cases peaked in 2007 which had the largest number of confirmed positive brucellosis cases whereby the location with the highest number of confirmed positive cases were reported in Perak for over 10 years. The mapping approach provides a clear visual description on the distribution of the cases, either the suspected cases or the confirmed cases over the season. GIS could be used in the future for brucellosis surveillance because of the ability to provide a baseline pattern of distribution, and identifying possible disease clusters in the monitoring process carried out currently in VRI.
