TickMap is a product of the Walter Reed Biosystematics Unit based in the Smithsonian Institution (see link for WRBU above). TickMap (see graphic to the left) is a geospatially referenced clearinghouse for tick disease vector species collection records and distribution models within VectorMap (see link for VectorMap above). Users can pan and zoom to anywhere in the world to view the locations of past mosquito collections and the results of modeling that predicts the geographic extent of individual species. Collection records are searchable and downloadable, users can map and contribute their own georeferenced collection data or distribution models, and all contributions have full attribution.
Currently, TickMap has 79,748 records. TickMap is designed to preserve and make available the results of past collecting and distribution modeling activity. The utility of TickMap will increase as more records and models are added. Contributions are encouraged, especially from individuals and organizations with digitized, georeferenced records and those involved in ongoing tick surveillance. TickMap is modeled on MosquitoMap - see International Journal of Health Geographics.
