Disease data

Disease Data

The platform integrates an event-based surveillance (EBS) database (generated by the PADI-Web tool) that examines reports, stories, and news about health events that could pose a serious health risk. It also integrates Epid Data Explorer, an epidemiological data visualization platform that aims to better understand the spatial and temporal evolution of epidemics.

PADI-web (Platform for Automated extraction of Disease Information from the web) is an automated biosurveillance system dedicated to the monitoring of online news sources for the detection of  health infectious events.

Epid data explorer is a generic platform that can process different types of epidemics from spatial (ISO 3166 or NUTS format) and temporal data. It can easily be installed locally to process non-public data.
