Abstract: This paper has two aims: (1) to summarize various geographic information science methods; and (2) to provide a review of studies that have employed such methods. Though not meant to be a comprehensive review, this paper explains when certain methods are useful in epidemiological studies and also serves as an overview of the growing field of spatial epidemiology.
Keywords: GIS; spatial modelling; air pollution; autocorrelation; overlay; spatial regression; remote sensing
