EDDMapS is a web-based mapping system for documenting invasive species distribution. It is fast, easy to use and doesn’t require Geographic Information Systems experience. EDDMapS’ goal is to maximize the effectiveness and accessibility of the immense numbers of invasive species observations recorded each year, and you can help by reporting sightings of invasive species!
