Global climate and environmental changes have brought various public health challenges in both infectious and non-communicable diseases. Satellite remote sensing technique provided diverse information of earth observation that has been applied to public health researches for more than two decades. The continuous earth observation datasets without administrative borders provides excellent opportunities for acquiring environmental parameters at both global and local scales. However, the technical barrier to retrieve satellite images and generate ready-for-analysis datasets might hinder the transdisciplinary collaborations between scientists in public health and remote sensing fields. Our project aims on developing an ecology and health sustainable platform (EHSP) to connect the both knowledge and technical gaps of such transdisciplinary collaborations. EHSP will provide customized products of remote sensing data for public health studies.
