             abstract = "The American Cutaneous Leishmaniasis (ACL) is an infectious, 
                         however not contagious parasitic illness, transmitted for known 
                         mosquitos as phlebotomines. The distribution of this vector can 
                         vary according to the geographical location. The insect develops 
                         the ingested parasite, becoming infective to the human beings, 
                         causing injuries in the skin and mucosa (nose, mouth), that it 
                         made this illness to be known as {"}wounded brave{"}. The ACL is a 
                         illness which can affect all human being that is in present in 
                         places whose environment is populated by mosquitoes. The majority 
                         of the cases occur in Northern parts of Brazil, although in the 
                         north of the Sao Paulo coast line, a touristic area, the number of 
                         cases are also high. In 2003 the number of cases reach its peak 
                         and this reason motivated the development of this assignment. The 
                         spatial and temporal distribution of the registered cases during 
                         the period 1998-2006 in Ubatuba county, Sao Paulo state, were 
                         analyzed using geoprocessing techniques and land cover 
                         information. The results showed that the illness seems to affect 
                         workers in general (masculine). It was found that the affected 
                         people usually live close to the forest and the land cover 
                         dynamics seems to play significant role in the contamination 
                         cycle. The results also showed that the illness contamination can 
                         be affected by economical and geographical factors once people 
                         choose their house in accordance with their income.",
