“…aegypti in real time, as compared to other georeferenced studies that used sampling of immature forms of the mosquito 13,14,15,16,17,18 (eggs and larvae), which demand time and infrastructure for identification, quantification, and data processing. The georeferenced maps produced by MI-Dengue and provided weekly on the Internet allowed municipal health managers to identify city blocks by colors (green, yellow, orange, and red) according to the number of female Ae.…”

“…4), where there is limited access to water, high population density high building density, and low neighbourhood quality. Several studies (Honório et al, 2003;Lagrotta et al, 2008;Siqueira-Junior et al, 2008;, found that Aedes mosquitoes and DF risk cases increase in areas with high human population density and high concentrations of dwellings. Similar results were also found by da Costa and Natal (1998), who stated that people from low socioeconomic backgrounds are more affected and at a greater risk of contracting DF.…”

“…Las características de estas técnicas de geoprocesamiento hacen de ellas herramientas poderosas en la planificación, la vigilancia y la evaluación de los programas de control. Muchos países han adoptado el análisis espacial de indicadores entomológicos dirigido a vigilar y controlar las poblaciones de vectores, principalmente en África, donde estas técnicas se orientan a mosquitos del género Anopheles, aunque los pocos estudios enfocados a A. aegypti han resultado promisorios en lo que respecta a vigilancia entomológica (13)(14)(15).…”
