19th ESOVE Conference,
13-17 October 2014 – Thessaloniki, Greece.
The data management in Vector Borne Diseases (VBD) surveillance may take advantage from structured databases where to store information produced by different entities. For this purpose we are developing an application for entomological data management for
West Nile (WNV) and Usutu virus (USUV) and Toscana Virus (TOSV) surveillance in Emilia-Romagna region, Italy.
The application ER-Vec 1.1 (Emilia-Romagna Vectors), on-line from 2014 (ervec.caa.it), allows real time data sharing between entomological laboratories that collect field data throughout the network of 72 CO and 16 gravid traps regularly activated during the 2 season such as: geographical data (station coordinates), collected vector species (mosquitoes and sandflies), trap type (CO traps or 2 gravid traps), and virus laboratory screening results such as: identification dates and virus type identified (e.g. WNV, USUV or TOSV).
