This Web-based application allows access to the epidemiology of the demand and the supply of care concerning End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD). It is a Web-based Geographic Information System (Web-GIS), the SIGNe (Système d’Information Géographique pour la Néphrologie), designed for the Renal Epidemiology and Information Network (REIN) dedicated to ESRD. It is a visualisation and decision-support tool. This Web-GIS was coupled to a data warehouse and embedded in a n-tier architecture designed as the Multi-Source Information System (MSIS). It provides maps matching the offer of care to the demand. It is presented with insights on the design and underlying technologies. It is dedicated to professionals and to public health care decision-makers
