IPANE Releases New Species Map Tool

This month, the NBII's Northeast Information Node (NIN)'s lead partner, Center for International Earth Science Information Network (CIESIN), is spotlighting the IPANE Species Map Tool on their homepage. The map tool allows users to explore the locations of selected invasive species common in New England, and includes a layer of USGS quad maps to track status of citizen science volunteers work in various locations.  Data used for species locations includes field data collected by IPANE volunteers and volunteers from state and local programs outside of IPANE, as well as Herbarium specimens. The map tool can be accessed from the home page of the IPANE website or from the IPANE species page. CIESIN has also completed revisions of data input screens for a new IPANE data input application.  IPANE is a featured partner of the Northeast Information Node of the National Biological Information Infrastructure (NBII-NIN).
