Swine: African and Classical Swine Fever Surveillance Field Operations Dashboard Quick Guide

View the Dashboard

Request Access 


USDA’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) surveys for African swine fever (ASF) and classical swine fever (CSF). The ASF/CSF field operations dashboard provides VS Field Operations employees with State level views of surveillance data and information about samples that they have submitted for testing. APHIS uses this data to strengthen disease detection capabilities, enhance outbreak preparedness, and support claims of disease freedom in this country.


Users can navigate the dashboard by clicking on the tabs at the top of the main page. The dashboard includes three tabs: a submission overview, submission lookup, and [if applicable] annual targets.

Submission Overview tab

Provides the number of specimens (or other value chosen from the drop down) submitted in the designated Collection State. It provides a total count, a table to break down the total, and a bar chart to highlight submissions over time.

To interact with this tab, users can:

  1. View this associated Dashboard Quick Guide
  2. Narrow down what is shown on the dashboard by Collection State, Surveillance Component, Reporting Status, and identify a timeframe to view. They can also select what the numbers should represent.
  1. Break down the total count in a tabular format
  2. Break down the bar chart by changing the color representation
  3. Enter a known Referral ID to highlight it on the bar chart or start entering a Referral ID to show suggestions.
  4. Click anywhere on the bar chart to find out more information about the associated Referral IDs
  5. If the state has designated annual collection targets, the user can click the green button to navigate to the third tab.
