    The aim is to predict the spatial variation of tick borne pathogens in northern Europe using prevalence data from 13 sites in five different countries (England, France, Netherlands, Denmark and Sweden) and environmental variables obtained from remote sensing imagery as predictors. For two species out of seven, the model was significant. Remote sensing imagery is a powerful tool to model the prevalence of tick borne pathogens in northern Europe
