Website Tracks Spread of EHV Virus
 By Artista   •   22nd May 2011   •   4,580 views   •   19 comments
Website Tracks Spread of EHV Virus was developed to help you track the spread of the deadly EHV-1 virus. Launched by member, Artista, we hope mediMAP can help people keep track of the virus in real time,

mediMAP is free to use, and has no sign up requirement. You give only the information that you want! Also, none of your personal information is displayed - even if you put your direct street address, the live feed for the map only displays a general location, so you and your horses remain safe.

You can update one horse, or all your horses - change reports, or add to a current report. mediMAP is free to use and allows users to monitor the spread of the virus and add their own healthy horses. Eventually we would like to provide statistical data - like the percentage of infected to healthy horses.

If you have any questions about mediMAP you can contact them through or through the Ponybox private message system. We hope it can help track the spread of this deadly disease and keep horse owners up to date!

I guess thats the advantage of not having the ability to take your horses anywhere and also having a private barn.

This helps a whole lot! Now I can get a better idea of where infected horses are located. Hopefully there won't be any infected horses in Montana.

It's pretty interesting to see how far exposed horses have come from. The wonders of the internet and the wealth of information it can give people in a matter of seconds.
