We have gathered numerous online maps and map resources to help you find the information you need to map the spread and distribution of invasive species. Databases containing plot data, polygon data, and point data on the occurrence of non-native species can be merged to improve each individual dataset and create a better knowledge base of invasive species.
> Invasive Species Databases, Proceedings of a Workshop. Excerpt from the Foreword: In 1998, a workshop was convened " ...on behalf of the Departments of the Interior, Agriculture, and Commerce in collaboration with the Charles Valentine Riley Memorial Foundation. On-line demonstrations and expert panels provided an opportunity for professionals in widely diverse fields of science and management to meet for the first time to apply their skills to the problem of invasive species. By exchanging information on how various database systems have been developed in the past, these federal, state, and non-governmental participants agreed on the need for linking and exploring applied uses of databases ."
