bTB mapping site set for refresh – have your say

First published: 23 November 2022

Cattle

Defra's TB mapping website, which has been in operation for more than five years, is changing and Defra need your help.  

IbTB (information Bovine Tuberculosis) is a free website, funded by Defra that provides maps of Bovine TB – ibTB - Mapping bovine TB (bTB) in England and Wales.

The site allows users to find out the current and historical TB status of cattle herds in England and Wales.

Planned update

It has been in operation for more than five years, and plans are being made for an update, by adding a range of new information to better inform users about TB risk when making trading and management decisions.

Before these changes are made, the developers (APHA and ERGO Ltd) have been asked to find out what users think of the suggested improvements, and to see whether the users have other suggestions for ways to enhance and improve the system.

Online survey

The online survey asks a few questions about each respondent, and then concentrates on gathering options on the planned changes.

The survey has brief notes to provide a bit of background information on most of the questions.

Site demonstration

Whilst users are welcome to complete the survey at their own convenience, anytime between 25 November 2022 and 1 January 2023, there will be an online Teams meeting where the system will be demonstrated, and participants will be taken though each question before filling in the survey online.

To take part in the survey visit EUSurvey - Survey (europa.eu)

If you would like to see a demonstration of the site join the Teams meeting:
