EDDMapS Alberta -- Invasive Plant Mapping in Alberta, Canada
University of Georgia. Center for Invasive Species and Ecosystem Health.
EDDMapS Alberta, the Early Detection & Distribution Mapping System for Alberta, is an innovative web-based mapping tool which can be used to document the distribution of targeted invasive plants across Alberta, and help identify the leading edge of new infestations. Volunteers can learn how to collect data on invasive plants, and enter the data into EDDMapS Alberta through a web-based data entry form. The intent is to empower the public to become actively involved, in order to more effectively slow the spread of harmful invasive plants, and reduce their environmental and economic damage.
