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.
