Spatial modeling of two mosquito vectors of West Nile virus using integrated nested Laplace approximation

October 28, 2022

This software involves R script to fit models of abundance of mosquito vectors (' Script_for_ECS22-0193_9_13_2215.R') to landscape and environmental covariates using INLA and SPDE. The dataset used for this analysis were originally provided by the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) with a confidentiality agreement. The majority of the data used in this study, however, have since been posted online by the DEP and are available at https://gis.dep.pa.gov/WNV/index.html. To download the data, click on the link, "Mosquito Testing Data."
