    Help - TRAPs Overview

    Using the Map

    On the map, locations are represented by red dots. Hover over a station to display station name and location information. Select the station by clicking on the dot. A selected station will show as a blue dot.

    You can find a station by typing in a city name in the "City Search" box. Select your location from the drop down search results, and the map will pan and zoom to the selected location.

    Zoom in on the map by double-clicking, or by clicking on the "box zoom" icon and dragging your mouse cursor to form a square around the desired zoom area.

    Pan allows you to drag the map to the right or left.

    Reset brings the map back to the full state view of Utah.

    Selecting the Biofix and End Dates

    Once you have selected a location, its name will show up in the box on the right side of the map.

    1. Select an option from the drop-down menu (codling moth, fire blight, etc.) The specific pest names provide degree days and management recommendations valid for that pest. The option called "GDD" (growing degree days) provides accumulated growing degree days since March 1.

    2. Select a biofix/start date or use the default date provided.

    3. Select an end date, or use the default date provided (the current date). The end date may be no later than today's date. You can also look up historic information, where available, but searches must occur within the same year.

    4. Click submit.

    Understanding the Search Results Table

    A table displays the date, maximum and minimum temperatures, accumulated degree days, and, where available, pest emergence information. Scroll up and down to get more data within the table.

    The table also provides three weeks of forecasted temperatures and degree days. The first week of forecast is based on gridded forecasting that is applicable to your station location, and the second two weeks are based on 30-year averages for that location.

    Click on to see Management Actions on the right of the table.
