Estimates were produced for environmental suitability of onchocerciasis presence at the 5x5 km-level in endemic countries across Africa. These estimates were produced using a boosted regression tree (BRT) analysis trained on reported onchocerciasis presence data from endemicity mapping surveys, surveillance during elimination programs, and other sources. The model was trained using data from 1974–2015; final estimates were produced using covariate values for 2013.
This dataset includes the following:
- GeoTIFF raster files for pixel-level estimates of environmental suitability for onchocerciasis presence.
- Code files used to generate the estimates.
