The digital future of infectious disease maps

argylesock says… Maps of infectious diseases have so much potential. I hope livestock, crop and wildlife diseases are being mapped too – if you know that they are, please say so. I’m a bit cautious because when you face a huge body of data and it keeps getting huger, the big challenge is to make sense of it.

[Edit] Plantwise provide global information including an interactive map and blogs about useful plant research and about invasive plants.

About argylesock

I wrote a PhD about veterinary parasitology so that's the starting point for this blog. But I'm now branching out into other areas of biology and into popular science writing. I'll write here about science that happens in landscapes, particularly farmland, and about science involving interspecific interactions. Datasets and statistics get my attention. Exactly where this blog will lead? That's a journey that I'm on and I hope you'll come with me.
