A peer-reviewed journal paper in which we fully develop the concepts underlying TAPPAS and its practical use as a biosecurity tool that we had previously presented at conference during 2015-16 (see below). The paper thus summarise the technical architecture of TAPPAS, uses it to reassess the conclusions of earlier papers published by Robert Sellers that had proposed that long distance wind dispersion (LDWD) of Culicoides midges might cause outbreaks of bluetongue and African horse sickness, and places TAPPAS in the context of other Big Data animal health applications.
