Elevation 0.008 by 0.008 [21]
Dengue cases Japan By province Weekly 2006–2016 [22]

  1. a All the climate raster files were resampled into 0.008 by 0.008 degree resolution by taking the nearest-neighbor assignments [2]
  2. b Due to data limitations, the night lights in 2013 was assumed to be consistent in 2014–2017, as the population density would not dramatically change during a short period of time [2]
