Hypothesis: Hyperendemic foci of Lyme disease are caused by specific landscape configurations within the northeastern endemic region that can be described and predicted by remote sensing and geographic information systems technologies.
The following paper came out of this work:
Dister, S.W., D. Fish, S. Bros, D.H. Frank, and B.L. Wood. 1997. Landscape characterization of peridomestic risk for Lyme disease using satellite imagery. Am. J. Trop. Med. Hyg. 57(6):687-692.
