Figure 1. . . Spatial distribution of 21 cities tested with Monitoramento Inteligente da Dengue (Intelligent Dengue Monitoring System [MID]), Minas Gerais, Brazil, 2009–2011. A). Size of city centroids (n = 218) (circles) is proportional to population size. B) Size of city centroids (n = 147) (circles) is proportional to total dengue fever incidence during 2007–2011. Gray circles indicate cities that never implemented MID, and black circles indicate cities that implemented MID during mid-2009–June 2011. Areas of higher and lower total incidence are positively clustered with each other (Moran’s I, p<0.0001). Cities that implemented MID and those that had not implemented MID are distributed throughout areas of high and low incidence. Only cities with populations >15,000 are shown. Incidence data were not available for all cities.
