A Data Mining Approach to Identify Climatic Determinants of Dengue Fever Patterns in French Guiana


Epidemic dynamics of dengue fever are driven by complex interactions between hosts, vectors and viruses that are influenced by environmental and climatic factors [1]. The development of new methods to identify such specific characteristics becomes crucial to better understand and control spatiotemporal transmission. We concentrated our efforts on applying sequential pattern mining [2] to an epidemiological and meteorological dataset to identify potential drivers of dengue fever outbreaks.


We used a data mining method based on sequential patterns extraction to identify local meteorological drivers of dengue fever epidemics in French Guiana.
