VectorNet tool: Submitting data on vectors
Using the VectorNet tool to submit data on vectors
Experts in vectors and vector-borne diseases can submit information on the distribution of vectors like ticks, mosquitoes, sand flies and biting midges in Europe through the online tool. They can register and submit data at various administrative scales (NUTS 1-2-3). The tool allows external experts to insert directly their data in an online database.
ECDC and EFSA collect and compile data on the distribution and surveillance of vector species to produce e.g. comprehensive online maps, providing the the stakeholders and general public with most up-to-date information on vector distribution. The collected information can also support relevant ECDC risk assessments on the diseases that these vectors can be associated with.
Join VectorNet and submit data
ECDC and EFSA, through the VectorNet network, continues to improve the data collection for the maps. VectorNet is looking for vector-borne disease experts who are interested in sharing data on the distribution of mosquito, tick, sand fly and culicoides vectors. Experts can contact VectorNet at VectorNet@ecdc.europa.eu to join the network. They can also register and upload data to the common database through the VectorNet tool .
Please note that the data do not represent the official view or position of the countries.
The VectorNet tool is an online tool where external experts in vectors and vector-borne diseases can submit information on the distribution of vectors like ticks, mosquitoes, sand flies and biting midges in Europe. Experts that wish to contribute can register and submit data at various administrative scales (NUTS 1-2-3) or data linked to geographic coordinates. They can insert directly their data in an online database.
