iMapInvasives is an online, GIS-based data management system used to assist citizen scientists and natural resource professionals working to protect our natural resources from the threat of invasive species.
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. Launched in 2005 by the Center for Invasive Species and Ecosystem Health at the University of Georgia, it was originally designed as a tool for state Exotic Pest Plant Councils to develop more complete distribution data of invasive species.
GLANSIS is an inter-agency, Great Lakes-specific database for Aquatic Nonindigenous Species (ANS) information.
The Nonindigenous Aquatic Species database is an information resource for the United States Geological Survey. Located at Gainesville, Florida, this site has been established as a central repository for spatially referenced biogeographic accounts of introduced aquatic species. The program provides scientific reports, online/realtime queries, spatial data sets, distribution maps, and general information. The data are made available for use by biologists, interagency groups, and the general public. The geographical coverage is the United States.
The Great Lakes and Mississippi River Interbasin Study is a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers study that presents a range of options and technologies to prevent aquatic nuisance species movement between the Great Lakes and Mississippi River basins through aquatic connections.
This document details the method used to develop the Great Lakes Surveillance Framework Watch List.
This document details the method used to develop the Aquatic Invasive Species Great Lakes Site Prioritization tool.
AsianCarp.us provides up-to-date information on ongoing efforts to prevent Asian carp from becoming established in the Great Lakes and beyond. We invite you to learn more about the work of federal, provincial, state and local partners as we join together to prevent the spread of these destructive fish.
In 1992, the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters, in partnership with the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry, established the Invading Species Awareness Program in order to address the increasing threats posed by invasive species in Ontario. Our objectives are to generate education and awareness of aquatic and terrestrial invasive species, address key pathways contributing to introductions and/or spread, and facilitate monitoring and early detection initiatives for invasive species found within Ontario.
