California Invasive Plant Council.
a new Web site for mapping invasive plant spread
and planning regional
generate a report
for their region that synthesizes information into
three types of strategic opportunities: surveillance,
eradication and containment. Land managers can use
these reports to prioritize their invasive plant
management, to coordinate at the landscape level
(county or larger) and to justify funding requests.
For some species, CalWeedMapper also provides maps
of suitable range that show where a plant might be
able to grow in the future. The system was developed
by the California
Invasive Plant Council and is designed
to stay current by allowing users to edit data.

Flora Project (NYMF)
Brooklyn Botanic Garden.
Dozens of flora native to the New York region face extinction, a result of urban
development and the encroachment of invasive plants from foreign lands, scientists
from the Brooklyn Botanic Garden report. Hoping to revive plants facing extinction,
scientists recently completed a 20-year project mapping species in every county
within a 50-mile radius of New York, providing detailed information on the health
of more than 15,000 native and nonnative species. See the for more information.

Nebraska Weed Control Association.
A state-wide mapping system for all 93 counties
in Nebraska. This mapping system creates a
state-wide database of invasive plants information
and maps them using ArcIMS. Each county weed control authority
updates the information directly on the website from current inspections.
Note, this may be the first state-wide mapping
program of this type.
