Description

This document is a ".kmz" file for use with Google Earth Pro, a desktop application which is free to download at the following URL: https://www.google.com/earth/download/gep/agree.html The document itself contains a heat map denoting the model predicted distribution of the fruitfly Phortica variegata in the UK based on known locations, calculated using a "Genetic Algorithm for rule-set prediction" (GARP) model to a resolution of 5km-squared following the principles outlined in Otranto et al. 2006. Coloration is a standard heat map style to indicate the likelihood of P. variegata presence. High decreasing to low likelihood of P. variegata presence is denoted by red to orange, yellow, green and blue, respectively. This is designed as a practical tool for use by dipterists in the field.
