Alaska Weed ID brings the power of EDDMapS to your phone. Now you can use an interactive key to identify invasive plants and submit those observations directly with your iPhone from the field. By reporting sightings of invasive plants, we can better assess the extent of the infestations and hopefully eradicate new infestations before they become huge problems. The goal of Alaska Weed ID is to make identification and reporting of invasive plants as easy and efficient as possible.
Alaska Weed ID was developed by the University of Georgia Center for Invasive Species and Ecosystem Health through a cooperative agreement with the University of Alaska Fairbanks School of Natural Resources and Extension, in cooperation with the US Fish and Wildlife Service.
