Figure 4. Choropleth maps of spatial Bayes smoothed human anthrax incidence rates in provinces of Vietnam. The years are not necessarily those with the highest anthrax incidence rates but those with the most widespread range of anthrax. Although anthrax incidence rates were highest in the northern provinces, they were not limited to those provinces.
