So this study provides the application necessitate geographic information system (GIS) to the web application for effectively utilizing geospatial data in the context of a specific public health. This approach draws on concepts and is developed under the broad umbrella of GIS society. Researchers tried to make the system assists those with responsibilities for the control of infection in the timely investigation and management of health incidents, particularly when they are of regional important.
