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
