Application of Geographical Information System (GIS) and Mobile Application in Livestock Disease Management in Developing Countries

Damaris Mbaluka, George Okeyo

Geographical information system (GIS) is a system for capturing, storing, integrating, analyzing and displaying data which is spatially referenced to the earth. The evolution of mobile GIS is upgrading the science and technology to a new horizon. Disease outbreak in livestock especially nomadic pastoralism is major problem which can be solved using this technology. This is due to movement adapted by farmers to meet the demands of seasonally available water and pasture. The main objective was to develop a model that will be used in the veterinary department to report, monitor, and control of livestock diseases. Data was collected using questionnaires in Kajiado County. Veterinarians agreed that tracing farmers in the field while grazing to give health services is difficult currently. A mobile Android-based application to report disease outbreaks by farmers was developed and integrated with GIS which is a web based mapping application to display the details sent by the farmer and location of the farmer using GPS. The evaluation of the model shows Geographical location is important when mapping disease prone areas to control livestock diseases. The study recommends developing of a GIS Cloud Mobile Data Collection system to collect of livestock diseases data in real time mode.
