Malaysians suffer from both communicable and non-communicable diseases. However, an easy to use tool is not available for the doctors, officers from Ministry of Health and also the public to analyze the disease. The data is not centralized and even if the user can collect sufficient data to analyze the data, many people do not have a clue about the overwhelming data. This project will develop a website that will visualize the disease data on a map stating the location that the diseases happened. As everyone might interpret the result differently, a paragraph of interpretation will be generated along with the visualization to give an impartial description about the data. This research consists of all the dengue and Tuberculosis cases in Daerah Kinta. Tuberculosis disease is chosen because it is more common in rural places like some parts of Daerah Kinta. On the other hand, Dengue is chosen because it is a very common vector borne disease in Malaysia. The methodology used is prototyping as it allows more users' feedback in the early stage of the system. Mock ups will be generated to allow users to interact with it. The map is shown by using Google maps API. The author will use Google Geocoding API to convert the addresses where diseases happened into longitude and langtitude to mark it on the map. The interpretation is generated by comparing the number of disease case in one period of time in an area with the medical standard provided by Jabatan Kesihatan Daerah Kinta.
