Awareness of the spread of the disease becomes a part that must monitor carefully. This monitoring requires solutions, one of which is through Geographic Information Systems (GIS). This paper discusses the use of GIS in controlling the spread of infectious diseases. The method used is to study previous research. This study provides an understanding of the application of GIS in various situations of the range of contagious diseases. This study includes GIS technology, which monitored the spread of infectious diseases, the application layer of GIS technology, the technology that supports development, and various types of map information displayed. This research provides an essential reference in the event of GIS, especially in the development of map-based software on the spread of infectious diseases.
