dc.description.abstractThe Disease Vector Database is a global, free, public, Web-accessible resource presenting data on the geographical distribution of infectious disease vectors and reservoirs. At present, the Database contains records for dengue and malaria vectors and Chagas disease and leishmaniasis vectors and reservoirs. Future versions of the Database will include parasite data. These data can be used for a variety of purposes including the construction of ecological niche models and disease risk maps. The Database permits downloading data in formats designed to facilitate such use, for instance, as input files for popular niche modeling software packages such as Maxent and GARP.en
