Mosquito Alert: Tiger Mosquito Dataset

Última versión Publicado por CREAF - Centre de Recerca Ecològica i Aplicacions Forestals en Nov 30, 2018 CREAF - Centre de Recerca Ecològica i Aplicacions Forestals

Asian tiger mosquito (Aedes albopictus) observations done by citizen scientists using the Mosquito Alert app. It includes reports from citizens tagged by them as "adult mosquito", that contain at least one picture and that it has been evaluated by entomological experts. According to these experts, the picture/s of this observation could be tiger mosquito (Aedes albopictus): their taxonomic features can be clearly seen in the picture/s, especially the white stripe on head and thorax (confirmed observations); or only some characteristic features can be observed, but it could be this species nonetheless (probable observations).

Cobertura Geográfica

Worldwide dataset, but mostly centered in Spain.

Coordenadas límite Latitud Mínima Longitud Mínima [-90, -180], Latitud Máxima Longitud Máxima [90, 180]

Cobertura Taxonómica

The identification is done at the species level by entomologists exploring citizen science pictures. A probability is assign, based on the taxonomic features observed in the pictures (confirmed or probable). See more information in the main resource description, metadata and data. The following experts and entomologists have participated in the validation (picture based) of this dataset: - Dr. Pedro María Alarcón-Elbal (Universidad Iberoamericana –UNIBE-, Instituto de Medicina Tropical & Salud Global –IMTSAG-) - Dr. Mikel Bengoa Paulis (Director de la Consultoria Moscard Tigre) - Dr. Sarah Delacour Estrella (Universidad de Zaragoza) - Dr. Roger Eritja - Santi Escartin (Associació Mediambiental Xatrac) - Dr. Simone Mariani (CEAB-CSIC, UB) - Dra.

Datos del Proyecto

Mosquito Alert is a citizen science observatory to investigate and control mosquito-borne diseases. It brings citizens, schools, scientists and managers of public health and the environment to fight against the tiger mosquito and the yellow fever mosquito, vectors of Zika, Dengue and Chikungunya. Observations of these species and their breeding sites are collected via the Mosquito Alert mobile phone app and shared in an interactive online map, after going through a process of expert (entomologists) and crowd validation. Public and private bodies in charge of mosquito surveillance and control use the data to assist surveillance and control tasks in their territories. The project was initially focused in Spain, altough participants can send observations from all around the world. Some pilot initiatives exist elsewhere (e.g. Hong Kong). It is coordinated by three public institutions in Spain in the field of scientific research: CREAF (Centre de Recerca Ecològica i Aplicacions Forestals), ICREA (Institución Catalana de Investigación y Estudios Avanzados) and CEAB-CSIC (Centro de Estudios Avanzados de Blanes). The project has the support from several public and private institutions.

Métodos de Muestreo

Anonymous citizen scientists send reports of possible observations of Asian tiger and Yellow fever mosquitoes and their breeding sites using the open source and free smartphone app Mosquito Alert. To send an observation, participants need to answer a small questionnaire (three taxonomic questions in the case of mosquitoes or some descriptors in the case of breeding sites), indicate the location (current participant location or selecting it on a map), add a picture (optional) and notes or comments (optional). The app and project website offers information to help identify the target species and take good pictures that allow a proper post validation from entomologists (see more information on Quality Control section). Participants can edit or remove the observation at any time (only if the participant still mantains the Mosquito Alert app in their phone). The last version of each report is considered the prevailing information.

Área de Estudio Data is obtained from citizens scientists who send observations of Asian tiger and Yellow fever mosquito possible observations (and their breeding sites) from the Mosquito Alert smartphone app. There are no limitations in terms of geographic areas allowed, so data can be sent from all over the world. Nevertheless, the Mosquito Alert citizen science project has been mainly focused in Spain. Similarly, there is no pre-set sampling frequency: participants can send as many data as they like. The project runs "face-to-face data collection events" mainly in schools, meaning that in some places and for a given time period, data sampling might be more intense. This is also true when and where there has been a particular dissemination event (e.g. project appearence in TV, Science Fair, etc.).
Control de Calidad Each report containing at least one picture is evaluated by three independent entomologist and, if needed, reviewed by a fourth expert (senior entomologist). The dataset only includes reports from citizens tagged by them as "adult mosquito", that contain at least one picture and that it has been evaluated by entomological experts. According to these experts, the picture/s of this observation could be tiger mosquito (Aedes albopictus): their taxonomic features can be clearly seen in the picture/s, especially the white stripe on head and thorax; or only some characteristic features can be observed, but it could be this species nonetheless. There is no other quality control (but see Sampling Description for a summary on how the project promotes quality amongst participants).
