2021 Povolzhskiy Journal of Ecology  
The modern period is characterized by the expansion of the areas of a number of dangerous infectious diseases, previously endemic only for the countries with tropical climate.  ...  As a result of Palearctic climate warming and humidification and under the influence of anthropogenic factors, foci of a new transmissible arboviral zoonosis – West Nile fever (WNF) – have been formed  ...  We used ERS materials obtained using the complex for aerial photography from an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) "GEOSCAN-101" to refine the reference images necessary for deciphering the foci of WNF.  ...
