The Geography of Ebola: important spatial features influencing its diffusion patterns | AP Human Geography |

This set of maps can be reviewed in detail at


The Geography of Ebola, goes one step beyond the environmental ecological concept of Ebola patterns.  Past geographers had a unique way of evaluating disease long before the microbial (pre-bacterial) theory became popular in the mid-1870s.  Using some of these older methods of spatially reviewing disease behaviors, we discover some important insights worth pursuing as spatial epidemiologists.  Amongst these are spatial theories linked to density, diffusion processes and the natural history of disease over time as natural endemic or epidemic disease processes.
