WDIN’s Global Wildlife Disease News Map Promoted as an Educational Tool

The Global Wildlife Disease News Map,, developed by the USGS-NBII Wildlife Disease Information Node (WDIN), is available to educators through AMSER, the Applied Math and Science Education Repository.  Funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) as part of the National Science Digital Library, AMSER is a searchable portal used by educators to find engaging educational materials and services on a number of math and science related topics.  The Disease Map, a popular resource, is currently being enhanced to improve the user experience.  A Beta version is available and can be viewed here,  After user feedback has been incorporated, the next version of the Map will be officially released.
