Infectious disease data mapped

The European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control has launched an online portal for researchers to share data on the spread of infectious diseases.

The online hub aims to help researchers exchange data on environmental change, land use, globalisation and socio-economic factors that affect disease transmission.

In a statement on 12 November, the ECDC said that such data was often highly dispersed and hard to obtain, and that the portal should help researchers model disease spread. It has been developed under the European Environment and Epidemiology (E3) Network and is known as the E3 Geoportal.
