The Atlas of Medical Entomology forms part of the Western Australian Department of Health's Atlas of Environmental Health, which provides a central repository for environmental health data, facilitates sharing of data between all levels of Government and enables Local Government Authorities to assess environmental health risks within their jurisdictions.
The Environmental Health Atlas is currently designed to assist groups specifically involved in mosquito management. The Atlas can be used to input and review mosquito surveillance data including adult and larval mosquito collections as well as producing reports on human cases of mosquito-borne diseases. The field guide is a valuable resource that will assist users in correctly identifying mosquito species and fine-tuning surveillance efforts. Further, a public complaint register allows users to record details of public complaints and provides mapping tools to view cases within real-time to further assess the need to take appropriate action.
