The RODS Open Source Project Open Source Outbreak and Disease Surveillance
RODS is available as open source software under the terms of the
Affero Public License. You can use the software freely, but if you improve
it you must contribute your code to the RODS project.
Please be aware that the links to files below may direct your
browser to another Web page offering a number of mirror sites. Do not use "Save
as..." on these links. BTW: Latest, development versions of the code can be found at
https://openrods.svn.sourceforge.net in our subversion source code repository. If you want
to become a committer ask Jeremy.
To compile the source code and use the entire RODS system you'll
Compile the source code using Sun's JDK1.5+ compiler,
Ant, and Xdoclet.
Install Tomcat (open source)
Install Apache (open source) and jk (for HTTPS)
Install Oracle or Microsoft SQL Server(commercial license)
Use ArcIMS and ArcSDE for GIS functions (prior to Version 5)
The RODS Laboratory runs this code in a production setting using
Linux on Sun hardware. Compiling and installing RODS and its associated software packages requires
the following skills: Java, Ant, J2EE, Tomcat administration, database
administration, Apache administration and ArcIMS expertise. Connecting hospitals requires network administration and HL7 expertise.
A fast implementation of scan statistic search for spatial overdensities.
Our goal is to find rectangular regions where the count (e.g. number of
disease cases) is higher than expected, given the underlying population
