ABSTRACT
Our aim is to identify, evaluate and catalogue Romanian ecosystems at risk and
environmental conditions linked to global change, which can influence the spatial and
temporal distribution and dynamics of West Nile virus. The project innovation
integrates health-environment investigations combined with spatial data (satellite
imagery) and with epidemiological data. The eco-geographical diversity of the project
study areas covers relevant Romanian eco-systems. The virus circulation is studied
within a scientific framework involving key-elements of the Landscapes, Vector and
Parasite bionomics, Public Health, human activities and Animal Reservoirs and will be
linked together by a series of integrative activities that include environmental change
detection, disease modeling, remote sensing and image interpretation.

Keywords: GIS, topographical maps, satellite images, ecosystems at risk and
environmental.
