About the maps
Since 2011, CAPC has been collecting data and developing the CAPC Parasite Forecast Maps. These maps give veterinarians a client education tool that supports year-round protection against parasites.The methodology is similar to that used by NOAA for hurricane forecasts. Millions of data points are tracked and combined with factors such as temperature, elevation, precipitation and population density to predict the risk of vector-borne diseases like Anaplasmosis, which can be a serious threat to a dog's health.
