This is the first time that data pertaining to TB from the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland have been collated and examined in an all-Ireland context. The analyses were based on 198, 156 point locations representing active farms with cattle in Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland between the years 1996 and 2006. The results consist of a series of maps giving a visual representation of cattle populations and associated detected bTB levels on the island of Ireland over this time interval.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Springer (Biomed Central Ltd.)||Journal:||Irish Veterinary Journal||Volume:||62||Issue:||3||Copyright (published version):||2009 the author(s)||Keywords:||Bovine tuberculosis; Epidemiology; Geographic information systems; GIS; Mapping; Northern Ireland; Republic of Ireland; TB||DOI:||10.1186/2046-0481-62-3-192||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
