Tracking Ovitrap Index is a means of assessing mosquito growth, which in turn supports the evaluation of dengue risk in the population. The map shows the distribution of ovitrap indices in July 2007 in Hong Kong, using data collected from 37 Ovitrap stations set up by Food and Environmental Hygiene Department, Hong Kong Government. The indices have been averaged and interpolated to cover the whole of Hong Kong, illustrating the spatial heterogeneity of the figures. Since the indices have been processed, the map no longer shows the actual values, and interpretation must be treated with caution. Inset shows the pattern in Kowloon peninsula.

誘蚊指數是評估白紋伊蚊生長的指標,並反映人群感染登革熱的危機。圖示香港在二零零七年七月的誘蚊指數的高低分佈,資料源自食物環境衛生署從三十八個放置誘蚊產卵器的地方所收集的指數,數據經處理後再平滑化,用以突顯不同地區的多相性。由於指數經過處理,地圖所示的已非原來指數,不能當作真實數值看待,闡譯可能會出現偏差。小圖為九龍市區情況。
