Early Detection and Distribution Mapping System Distribution of Invasive Plants Across the South Electronic Early Detection System to Allow for More Rapid Responses Large Scale Cooperative Management of New Invasive Species
History • No complete distribution data for Southeast • Holes in USDA PLANTS and now USDA Forest Service FIA data • Some data existed but not compiled in one location • SE-EPPC could provide support for state chapters • Invasive Plant List justification • State EPPCs could provide EDRR framework • Central location for collection and storage of data
Current Data - Statistics • 79,998 records • 9,991 point records • 492 plants
Electronic Early Detection System • Each state has a designated reviewer • Responsible for verifying all data entered in that state • Responsible for notifying the appropriate people when a EDRR species is reported • Each state can designate EDRR species that automatically are flagged • Email sent to designated persons within the state when a EDRR species is reported • State EDRR Committees
Electronic Early Detection System • State designated EDRR list vs. SE-wide list • State list allows for more specificity • Species that are common in one state may be a EDRR species in another • Example garlic mustard • Common in TN and KY • EDRR species in GA and AL
EDDR Technology • Google Maps • Wiki • Web Services to share Data • NAWMA standards • KML • Digital Cameras • Inexpensive GPS units • Smartphones
EDDMapS • 2 years and going strong • Further compilation of collection data • Working toward collaboration between all of the mapping projects underway • Integration with ArcGIS software to output shapefiles and more detailed maps • Looking for funding opportunities • Invasive Plant Atlas…
