The heart of the Atlas is its maps. For each country, three maps are shown for both STH and schistosomiasis:
These are related, with the first derived from empirical survey data and the second from models using survey locations (and dates) and environmental data on temperature and vegetation. The control maps are then derived from the predictive maps interpreted at district level to assist decision-making.
For countries endemic for LF, a map showing the intervention coverage is available. This map shows the total number of rounds achieving good treatment coverage by each implementation unit, as reported to the World Health Organization.
All these maps are freely available for download and non-commercial use to support control planning and implementation, for example in the estimation of target populations and drug needs.
