The data are compiled to produce comprehensive online maps, providing the ECDC stakeholders and general public with most up-to-date information on vector distribution. The collected information can also support relevant ECDC risk assessments on the diseases that these vectors can be associated with. To improve the quality and representation of data, streamline the collection of information and reach out to more external experts, ECDC, through the VBORNET network, developed the vector questionnaire tool allowing external experts to insert directly their data in an online database.

Experts that wish to contribute can register and submit data at various administrative scales (NUTS 1-2-3), they can also request access to other vector information in the database.
