VBORNET gap analysis: Sand fly vector distribution models utilised to identify areas of potential species distribution in areas lacking records.

The data package described here includes those sandfly species first modelled in 2013 and 2014 as part of the VBORNET gap analysis work.  It comprises four species models together with suitability masks based on land class and environmental limits.  The species included within this paper are <i>Phlebotomus papatasi, Phlebotomus ariasi, Phlebotomus perniciosus</i> and <i>Phlebotomus tobb</i>i.<br><p><i>This data is presented in the Open Health Data  Journal.<br></i></p><p>Contributors to the VBORNet database that was used to train the models are listed below:</p><p>Carla A.
