  1. Epidemiology using a GIS: the need for caution.

    Article - En anglais

    This paper argues that a more cautionary and critical approach needs to be adopted in applied Geographic Information System (GIS) research.

    The present euphoria surrounding GIS provides a seed-bed where basic mistakes could be generated which could lead to erroneous findings and policy recommendations.

    Such events would deflect attention away from the relevant research currently being pursued and the true potential which GIS seems to offer the scientific research community.
