The web map of urban Aedes mosquitoes 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 map incorporates a number of filters which allow the user to visualise all information simultaneously, or display only certain information based on certain characteristics:

      • Filter by years: for selecting the year of data to be shown.
      • Filter by month: for selecting a specific month, or seeing all months.
      • Filter by type: for selecting what kind of data to see, including sightings of urban Aedes mosquitoes, their breeding sites, or areas being explored.
      • “Expert validation” filter: with this filter you can choose to only see reports and associated photos which have gone through the process of expert validation. Using the filter, choose to see sightings classified as “very likely” or “likely” to be actual tiger or yellow fever mosquitoes or breeding sites.
