Infectious Disease Management in Russia

For a number of years, the Russian State Research Center for Applied Microbiology and Biotechnology (SRCAMB), in collaboration with NeoGeography R&D Group (Technopark Protvino), explored the various spatial and temporal dynamics of infectious diseases. However, the organization found that traditional GIS and spatial approaches had obvious limits. By investigating new spatial-temporal approaches, SRCAMB was looking for better quality of analysis of heterogeneous datasets within a common 4D environment. To aid this effort, SRCAMB is implementing both ERDAS IMAGINE and ERDAS APOLLO.
