mapMCDA helps producing risk maps by weighting risk factors using expert knowledge.

The typical use case is the lack of (reliable) data about the epidemics of a disease, but available information about well known risk factors (e.g. animal density, proximity to border, proximity to water courses, etc.).

In order to design a stratified sampling or a surveillance campaign, a preliminar risk map based on expert judgement is required.

This package (and method) provides a systematic and guided approach to build such maps.

The package include a Graphical User Interface (Shiny) that helps in processing and weighting risk factors.
