Additional file 3. The dataset with grid data and prevalence categories for the three most commonly reported species of Borrelia spp. in the target territory. The dataset must to be used to start the modelling analysis using the script in Additional file 2. It contains data about habitat suitability of the tick vector (column Prob_ricinus) as well as the six temperature (TFourier1 to TFourier 3) and vegetation variables (VFourier1 to VFourier3). Also included (but not used by modelling algorithms in the resolution of the best modelling approach) are “Level 4” (the top category in the hierarchy of bioclimate regions in the LANMPA2 scheme), “GlobCovMaj” (dominant vegetation according to the GlobalCov scheme), “GlobCovDiv” (landscape fragmentation in the cell as the number of different categories of vegetation). The remaining three columns “clas_afzelii”, “clas_garinii” and “clas-valaisiana” refer to the category of repavlence of each of the three modelled species of Bb.
