Geographic Tools for Global Public Health: An Assessment of Available Software Abstract:

There is a growing list of software options for those wishing to map data. Users in global public health often have little time or money to invest in developing the technical expertise and data required for mapping, and are therefore confronted with capacity and data constraints that can make mapping difficult to implement. This makes the process for selecting the most appropriate software especially challenging. In this guide, the MEASURE GIS Working Group evaluates the features and ease of use of five commonly used mapping applications: ArcGIS, Quantum GIS (QGIS), Epi Info, Google mapping tools (including Google Maps, Google Earth, and the related MEASURE E2G tool), and DevInfo.
