The citizen observations map of tiger mosquito and yellow fever mosquito complies all historic information sent by citizens into one map. Remember that your locations may take some time to appear on the map; reports with photos are progressively added as experts validate them. Also, results of citizen validation of reports are added as available.
The citizen observations map incorporates a number of filters which allows the user to visualise all information simultaneously, or display only certain information by selecting one or more filters:
- Type of mosquito: shows possible tiger mosquito (Aedes albopictus), yellow fever mosquito (Aedes aegypti) or other species reports.
- Breeding sites: shows reports of possible breeding sites (scuppers on public roads), with and without water.
- Distribution of participants: the darker boxes indicate that there are more people with the app installed or there are users who have been with the app for a long time on their mobile.
- Temporary filter: select the year and months that you want to see on the map.
