Mosquito Distribution Maps

These maps show mosquito habitat distribution for four mosquito species. The red/black areas are results of satellite data analysis showing where particular species of mosquitos can be found. The yellow lines are the 'published' boundaries for where these species can be found. There is a strong correlation between the two. These images were created in support of a story describing how NASA is assisting the CDC and EPA in tracking the spread of West Nile Virus.
