ZanzaMapp is an exceptionally innovative and useful mobile app, developed by professor Cesare Bianchi working out of Sapienza University in Italy, that is designed to make it easier than ever to gather crowdsourced information from the public in order to be able to spot areas that are high in mosquito activity.

What's great about the ZanzaMapp app is the fact that it effectively creates a heat map that allows people to locate and identify places that have a high concentration of mosquitoes, pests and other insects. The app was inspired by the absence of information on how to deal with mosquito-borne threats and diseases.

The ZanzaMapp app shows a lot of promise in helping prevent the spread of infectious disease by helping people avoid places that are high in mosquito activity.
