The purpose of this study is to identify the environmental variables of malaria vector breeding sites identified in Webuye using a combination of Landsat 8 OLI Satellite Imagery and GIS. We will classify land cover of Webuye using LANDSAT Satellite Imagery and GIS to determine the environmental variables associated with the locations of identified malaria vector breeding sites and use Geographic Information Systems (GIS) to predict locations of other potential breeding sites in Webuye. We will test the accuracy of predictions of potential breeding site locations through field site visits in specific environmental zones determined using LANDSAT.
