Theia Risks Associated with Infectious Diseases SEC proposes geographical layers of land cover, derived from SPOT imagery, for different study sites located in South East Asia (Cambodia, Laos, Thailand), between 2006 and 2016.

Land cover and landscape structure are indeed determinants of the distribution of rodents and their pathogens in Southeast Asia. The same typology was adopted for all the sites, which makes it possible to study the relationships between landscape, biodiversity and infectious risks.
