A Software Infrastructure for Promoting Efficient Entomological Monitoring of Dengue Fever

This project is a collaboration between Computing Science (Newcastle University) and Pontifi­cia Universidade Catolica do Rio de Janeiro (PUC-Rio). 

The focus of the project is as follows:

  1. Design and implement a software infrastructure (the software product line) to support monitoring of epidemic diseases such as Dengue fever.
  2. Apply Data Analytics models on collected data to predict Dengue fever outbreaks and related events.
  3. Understand the spread patters of Dengue fever in real time using Data Analytics to better allocate public health resources.
