    1. Part Eight: Final Exercise

    2. Final Exercise A farmer is found with a high fever and developing pustules on his outer extremities, especially on the souls of his feet and palms of his hands. The EOC draws an immediate exposure area of 500 meters around the farm.

    3. In GIS speak, what is this exposure area called? In epidemiology speak what would this area be called? Why did the EOC do this? How would this area be turned into an exposure buffer on the ground? What data sets are visible, what other datasets would be useful? 10 minutes

    4. Two more exposure areas of An additional 500 meters have been drawn

    5. Why would these additional buffers be added? What additional information would the EOC ask the field team for? 5 minutes

    6. All roads entering or within the buffer have been selected

    7. What type of GIS data is a roadway? Where would you get this data layer? Why would you want to query roads inside the buffer? 5 minutes

    8. The Roadway has been buffered to 100 meters

    9. Why would you want to buffer the road? 5 minutes

    10. All surrounding farms have been added

    11. Why would you want to add these farms? What type of GIS feature are farms? Name three ways these farms could be added into the GIS 7 minutes

    12. The farm size has been visualized to show amounts of an attribute

    13. What is an attribute? What possible attribute could be relevant to be visualized in this way for this example? 3 minutes

    14. Those farms meeting a specific query have been selected out

    15. How do we know which farms have been selected out? What might the query of the GIS have been? What would the attribute table look like? 5 minutes

    16. Contact information on the farm is displayed

    17. What is the easiest way to get this information about a single farm in the GIS? If the EOC believes the disease is airborne – what Other GIS layers would be needed? If instead of an isolated farm, multiple cases of the disease had started to develop in a nearby urban area, how could the EOC have found a possible origin? 10 minutes

    18. How would the concept of social vulnerability mapping be incorporated in the the EOC decision making process? What data would be needed to make a choropleth map? What dangers are involved in using this cartographic display? How could spatial sampling, and point-in-polygon improve what the EOC knows about the vulnerability of populations? 30 minutes
