Figure 2: The ZHAW Institute of Natural Resource Sciences (IUNR) developed in order to the Swiss Federal Office of Public Health the «Tickbite Model 2018». More than 16,000 tickbite datasets were used for the validation of the static model. In red coloured areas the probability to get bitten by a tick is bigger than in areas coloured blue.
