Additional information

The climate suitability map for the tiger mosquito has a scale from 0 to 100 and is calculated based on annual rainfall amounts and winter and summer average air temperatures. The climate suitability for tiger mosquito is zero when the annual rainfall is lower than 450 mm, and maximum suitability is reached when the annual rainfall exceeds 800 mm. For summer temperatures, the suitability is zero when average temperatures were below 15 °C and above 30 °C, and maximum suitability is between 20 °C and 25 °C. In winter, the suitability is zero when average temperatures were below -1°C and maximum when temperatures were above 3°C. The resulting suitability functions are entered into a weighted linear combination approach and the results are rescaled to a range between 0 and 100. (Vito, 2019b). For detailed maps of the cities included in the project, see the Urban Adaptation Map Viewer.
