Abstract


Diabetes mellitus (DM) is not one of the not transmissible chronicdiseases that more affect man, reaching countries in all development stages.This work had as objective to analyze the concentration of type 2 DM inthe city of Viçosa-MG, in the age group above 40 years, using geoprocessingtechniques. The data of DM were acquired at the municipal administration by the collection of the Reorganization Plan of Attention to ArterialHypertension and Diabetes Mellitus. As result two thematic maps weregenerated using the software Arc View 3.2. Analyzing the thematic maps itis noticed that DM is space distributed in a random way, having central andoutlying areas with the presence of the disease. This technology hasdemonstrated to be important for localization and space distribution ofindividuals with DM and could be applied to any municipal administrationwithout high cost.
