Geographic Information System (GIS) is one of the powerful tools in public health research. It has been used widely used in disease surveillance and monitoring, identification of high risk area and population at risk. This research will utilize the spatial analytical tools in GIS to establish the relationship between dengue fever cases and factors that contribute to transmission of dengue. It will provide aid to the dengue management system from the aspect of surveillance and investigation where the conventional method of health mapping and analysis can be improved. With the use of GIS spatial data can be presented by detailed mapping and modeling. It gives a better understanding of the epidemic flow therefore control and prevention plan be implemented for instance. GIS is being introduced into the dengue management system mainly to increase awareness of GIS technology in the public health sector.
