“…The relationship between elevation (DEM) and rainy season was observed in this study, showing that the lower slope area suffer the influence of precipitation, causing the accumulation of water, which is an aggravating factor for the disease epidemiology and transmission. Barbosa et al 11 , using a distance map and a water expansion map, found an association between patients with schistosomiasis and the proximity to breeding sites or foci of Biomphalaria in Porto de Galinhas, municipality of Ipojuca, Pernambuco. In Itamaracá, the analysis performed through the distance maps showed that the main centers of active transmission of the disease are located in the streets around schools and local helthcare center, places of compulsory and systematic access by the population.…”
