Newcastle disease is a devasting disease in poultry production worldwide, thus it is important to implement control measures to avoid entrance of the disease and its spread in the field. In this context, the aim of this study was to design and implement a seroprevalence map based on business intelligence for avian paramyxovirus type 1 (APMV-1) in broilers in the Valencia Community (eastern Spain). This tool consists in software mapping based on data collection, data analysis and data representation. In order to obtain the serological data, 12 495 sera from 131 broiler farms over 5 years were analysed (2008–2012). The data were represented on a map of the Valencian Community including geographical information of flock locations to facilitate disease monitoring. No clinical signs of APMV-1 were reported in the studied flocks. The data from this study showed no evidence contact with APMV-1 in broiler flocks and the novel software mapping tool as a valuable method for easily monitoring the serological response to avian paramyxovirus type 1 (APMV-1) including geographical information.
