Resumo

Dengue fever is a challenging complex transmissible disease due to its unstable temporal and spatial dynamics. Modeling is a powerful tool to understand disease dynamics and to evaluate costs, benefits and effectiveness of control strategies. In order to assist decision-makers and researchers in the evaluation and proposition of new strategies, we present DengueME, a collaborative open source platform for dengue modeling. It provides an environment for easy implementation of compartmental and individual-based models over a geographic database, combining modules describing Aedes aegypti's life cycle, human demography, human mobility, urban landscape and dengue transmission.
