Spatiotemporal Bayesian Network Models for Malaria Prediction

This project involves development of spatio-temporal Bayesian networks to effectively integrate crowd-sensed and authority-sensed data concerning infectious disease. The techniques promise to help provide rapid and reliable outbreak detection, prediction, and evaluation of control strategies. Initial focus of our work has been on malaria which continues to pose a serious public health threat in tropical countries such as Thailand and its neighbors, particularly in remote areas. Work on dengue is planned in the near future.

It is designed to empower stakeholders at the local level with the tools and knowledge necessary to reduce poverty in their districts.

mapIT: Barrier-free Micro-mapping of Small Geographic Objects

mapIT enables mapping of small geographic features on ground level with high geometric accuracy with common smartphone technology. It offers an intuitive workflow that allows to capture a geo-object with just a few simple interactions with the mobile device. It is suitable for being used by people with minor technical skills and without experience in geo-data retrieval and annotation.

Data4All: Crowdsourcing Volunteered Geographic Information Mapping

Data4All is Volunteered Geographic Information collaborative mapping project. Data4All is Bachelor project aims to contribute information to OpenStreetMap (OSM) project. It is an Android based mobile editor for voluntary collection of geographic information.

WellComm - A Communication Hub for Remote Areas

Communication in remote rural areas of developing countries can be difficult: although network coverage is available in many places, there is often no electricity to run or charge phones or computers. It is not only inconvenient for the people living in these areas, it is also problematic when people need to be informed by governmental administrative units about situations.
