Dissemination

Much of our work involves the collation of large spatial datasets covering the entire range of a disease or disease vector in recent years. We have a strong policy of making these datasets available to all on a free and unrestricted basis via this website and the MAP site. The individual data included in our compiled datasets were all collected by other groups including public health agencies, international aid organisations and research groups. We then check and standardise these diverse datasets by ensuring each point is disaggregated to an individual location and time period, geopositioned and linked to information about its provenance. Before disseminating unpublished data, we obtain permission to release from the original data contributors, and individual data points are held confidential until this permission is granted.

SEEG also disseminates much of the computer code developed to analyse these data. This open-source software can be downloaded from the MAP and SEEG GitHub pages.

ROAD-MAP II
An enhanced Repository of Open Access Data of the Malaria Atlas Project

April 2014 - March 2019

As the scientific and policy scope of MAP has expanded, so too has the volume and intricacy of data assembled and generated by the project, and the complexity of disseminating these resources effectively to our diverse user community. In recognition of this growing challenge, MAP established in 2010 the Repository of Open Access Data (ROAD-MAP).

With a further 5-years' support awarded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, ROAD-MAP will provide key cross-cutting support to the wider MAP project by (i) maintaining and expanding the human resource, database, and physical storage infrastructure that underpins our assembly, curation and dissemination of input malariometric data; (ii) providing the computational architecture required to store, manage and share MAP's complex geospatial modelling outputs with technical end-users in the malaria modelling community and (iii) sustaining and enhancing our mechanisms for packaging technical model outputs into user-friendly visual and digital mapped products for wide online dissemination to decision-makers and non-technical end-users, as well as providing customization services to specific stakeholders including the World Health Organisation - Global Malaria Project (WHO-GMP).

Harry Gibson, Andy HenryZhi Huang and Mike Thorn work on this project, which is led by Peter Gething.

ROAD-MAP
A Repository of Open Access Data collated by the Malaria Atlas Project

September 2010 - March 2014

This project aims to collate survey data of relevance to malaria control, then disaggregate, standardise and geopositon these data, and make the resulting compiled datasets available to all via an online Data Explorer. Within SEEG these datasets have been used to model global spatial variation in Plasmodium falciparum endemicity, P. vivax endemicity, distributions of 41 malaria vector species, G6PD deficiency prevalence, Duffy negativity prevalence and sickle cell allele frequency. All of the model output data are disseminated on an open access basis under the ROAD-MAP project. They are provided as both datasets and map images available for download from an online Resource Browser. This project was led by Andy Henry and Catherine Moyes.
