In tephritid fruit fly programs, spatial analysis attempts to determine the spatial distribution of target fly populations, recognize and understand geographic patterns, and identify relationships with ecological factors and control activities. Traps provide the majority of information about the presence and size of tephritid fruit fly populations, and spatial analysis of the trap data elucidates tephritid fruit fly population patterns and trends.
