Mapping land use/land cover and malaria mosquitogenic condition, and linking with epidemic transmission in the urban settlements using remote sensing and GIS

M Palaniyandi, T Mariappan, PK Das

Mosquito nuisance and the urban malaria become very big problems in the urban settlements in India. A significant study was made to mapping the potential surface areas of mosquito breeding habitats, mosquito breeding surface areas, ground water level, and land use / land cover classes, and linking with ward wise malaria cases. The indigenous satellite data of value added hybrid colour composite imagery of IRS 1D PAN and LISS III was used for preparing land use / land cover map. The Arc View spatial analysis and image analyst GIS software was used for mapping and overlay analysis. Performing the spatial analysis enabled for reexamining mosquito breeding habitats, and assessing the mosquito breeding surface areas for mosquito control in the city on priority basis. Thus, the result was made clear that the application of remote sensing and GIS is sensible and feasible to malaria epidemic control in the urban environment.
