Reporting the Invasion of the Triffids

iMapInvasives has created a series of state maps designed to protect natural resources from the threat of invasive species.

The maps are designed to report and share information about invasive animal, plant and insect species in each state. The data for the maps come from a variety of sources, including citizen scientists who can use the map to report invasive species. Maps are currently available in Arizona, Florida, New York, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Vermont and Virginia.

Each of the maps allows the user to select from distinct animal, plant and insect species and view a heat map of the distribution of the selected species.
