Abstract
There is a strong link between health and geography. Disease distribution and health outcomes are very much affected by the places where people live. World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that about a quarter of the diseases which mankind is facing today occur due to prolonged exposure to environmental pollution. Unfortunately, today’s medical record is a vast collection of clinical facts and observations but remains silent about the accumulation of environmental health impacts and risks of the patient. A new application is needed for environmental monitoring which can collect data on environmental exposures. Such application can relate one’s personal health status to the specific geographical risk factors by just entering the address of the patient, which will provide a powerful set of information that medical professionals can use for better diagnosis
