The presentation will include a brief review of almost 20 years of experience with Open Source GIS software with several years in the public health sector in terms of environmental data analysis for vector-borne diseases. In the talk the connection between Free Software and open geodata is explained along with a critical review of limitations and opportunities. A series of applications will be shows were freely available data have been applied to potential distribution mapping of Aedes albopictus and other disease vectors.
