Avia-GIS bvba "Agriculture and Veterinary Information and Analysis" is a Belgian SME founded in 2001 that specializes in the collection, processing and analysis of spatial information as a basis for the development of data driven space-time information systems (STIS) applied to veterinary and public health in general and (emerging) zoonoses and vector-borne diseases (VBD) in particular. We focus on the application of state of the art techniques that broaden the scope of conventional analyses and help bridge the gap between research and decision-making including: geographical information systems (GIS), spatial modelling and analysis, earth observation and satellite navigation.
Avia-GIS is active in two main domains: (1) optimized health information systems and (2) precision pest management solutions. Within these domains Avia-GIS offers a range of services to research teams, governmental agencies, international organizations and the industry. These include: software, database and mobile applications development/maintenance; research and technical development; consulting; and capacity building. Our products generate high quality data, save time and reduce costs.
