In many parts of the world, mosquitoes are more than just a summertime nuisance. Their ability to carry and spread disease to humans causes millions of deaths every year, according to the World Health Organization. Using the GLOBE Observer Mosquito Habitat Mapper, citizen scientists will be able to augment broad scale satellite-based research with targeted ground-based observations at a high level of granularity.
Learn how to use GLOBE Observer to take Mosquito Habitat Mapper observations in your own community! Submit your own observations, even if larvae are not found in the mosquito habitat.
