Getting the Most Out of Maps

Reporting data for every disease in GIDEON is accompanied by a color-coded map which contrasts endemic vs. disease-free countries. For some diseases, reporting data are sufficiently accurate and comprehensive to allow for a more detailed map based on relative disease incidence from country to country. For example, this map of tuberculosis illustrates the location of heavily infected countries:

When the cursor is passed over any given country, additional information regarding population and disease rates appears:

When we zoom in on Algeria, we can click on the red dot and display the corresponding notes:

All maps are continually updated electronically as data are added to the databases which power GIDEON.  Currently, gradient maps are available for over 20 diseases, listed below. As data are acquired by our team, additional diseases will be added to this list.

As with all other GIDEON options, these maps can be printed, sent to PowerPoint, used to prepare student handouts, and lots more!
