25 July – 25 August: GLOBE Mosquito Habitat Photo Challenge

Mosquito Habitat Photo Contest shareable, with a roll of film drawn in the background.


The GLOBE Program would like to invite community members and citizen scientists from around the world to participate in the Mosquito Habitat Photo Challenge, which will take place from 25 July through 25 August. This challenge combines the use of GLOBE’s app, GLOBE Observer (GO), Mosquito Habitat Mapper (MHM) and Land Cover tools to document mosquito breeding habitats with photos.

GLOBE would like you to take photos of mosquito habitats, in either natural or artificial containers (using the MHM tool) and photos of the land around the habitat location (using the Land Cover tool). Photos submitted during this challenge will be used to create automated classification programs that can identify mosquito larvae and the environments they prefer. Such computer programs can help prevent outbreaks of mosquito-borne disease.
