With a particular focus on the Zika Virus, we propose the usage of drone-based preventive health surveillance techniques for vector-borne diseases. Using a combination of image streams (from a drone-mounted camera) and localized sensor information, this project aims to identify potential mosquito breeding grounds. Thermal images superimposed on RGB camera images are used in conjunction with geotagged information to help pinpoint a precise site. Using Image and Video Processing we intend to detect stagnant water bodies that contribute to the spread of mosquitoes. Quality assessment of images is done to reject images with noise and distortion. Ambient conditions are correlated with the results of Image Processing and a probability distribution is used to generate heat map visualization of the mosquito prevalent regions at a city level. An iOS App serves as a visualization tool.
