Outbreak Surveillance Toolbox - Maps

A map showing the area of an outbreak should be included in the surveillance plan; it is recommended to put this in the Introduction section or in an appendix. Maps also help clarify the delineation of various areas/zones that will be described in the surveillance plan.

Resources for creating maps

VS employees in need of GIS and mapping assistance should consult the VS Online Mapping Service for specific map requests or the GIS Sharepoint site for general GIS information.
