Aim: Tuberculosis has high mortality in the world and recently recurring. Nowadays TB incidence is increasing. Observation, follow-up and comparing disease's Incidence would be necessary for prevention, management and control them. The purpose of this study is TB incidence surveillance in different times and places of Iran by GIS.
Methods: This study is a retrospective analysis on TB incidence of 10651 cases that registered on Iran stop TB system in March 2014 to March 2016. In order that Possibility to compare, data have been arranged by diagnosis period in iran TB organization for comparison of study. To choose parameters, effective environmental parameters extracted from previous studies. Correlation between TB incidence rate and effective environmental parameters were tested with Pearson correlation test; then available environmental data's information layers develop and integrate by ARcMap 10.3.
Results: considering the seasonal nature of this study, 8 integrated maps of temperature, wind and climate that separated according to states were showed in regions with high temperature, wind and warm and dry climate we have more TB incidence. In summer the incidence is less than other seasons.
Conclusion: The disease condition observation in states based on different colors at different intervals, allowed health politicians to compare and understand the statistics.
