Mathias Bull (eds.)>This quantity comprises the refereed court cases of the 1st>Workshop on Geomedical structures, GEOMED '97 , held in Rostock, Germany, in September 1997. Geomedical structures are details structures used to observe the health and wellbeing state of affairs in geographically-distributed populations. they're used either to become aware of and to forecast future health dangers. in recent times, many nationwide and foreign (EU) tasks on such structures were proven. those have concerned geographers, epidemiologists, statisticians and machine scientists. method layout has tried to fulfill to wishes of capability clients. The papers in GEOMED '97 current new instructions within the box of geomedical structures and discover the interface with similar themes similar to epidemiological modelling. The papers should be of significant obstacle to all scientists whose paintings goals to lessen the effect of disorder at the human population.

7 Software environments The raster GRID component of ESRI's ARC/INFO GIS was used for all kernel estimation calculations. This was achieved using the Pointdensity function, taking the kernel option. 1. 0a was also used for display manipulation and hardcopy output. 64 3. Application to environmental epidemiology Having established some of the fundamental concepts and methods which we have adopted and developed, we now consider the application of these ideas, using data on the incidence of MND in Lancashire and south Cumbria, England.

As such we hope to avoid the problems which often beset area based approaches and can lead to the Modifiable Areal Unit Problem (MAUP), whereby possibly false interpretations are made from analyses purely as a result of arbitrary aggregations of the data. 1 Georeferencing In the UK, (and increasingly elsewhere), it is now possible to extract a full postcode from any given address, and match this postcode to the UK National Grid coordinate system, which geocodes each postcode to a spatial accuracy of at least 100m (Gatrell, 1989).
