Tracking Invasive Species with Google Maps
iMapInvasives is an initiative established to track invasive species in the United States.
So far the project has created four maps, using the Google Maps API, to map invasive species in Florida, New York, Oregon and Vermont. Each map allows the user to view a heat map for the distribution of different invasive species in the state.
Different species can can be selected from the map sidebar. The sidebar also contains other overlays that can be added to the map, such as county boundaries.
