Mapping is one of the most important steps in the fight against noxious weeds. Once we understand how widespread a noxious weed community is, we can use this information to help determine the best way to manage it. Mapping data is collected by counties, municipalities, non-profit organizations, and even private citizens!
EDDMapSWest is utilized throughout the western states. It is free, easy to use, and compatible with MapItFast, Shapefiles, GPS, Gpx, Google Earth KML, KMZ files, and spreadsheets with latitude and longitude. Utilizing EDDMapS is perhaps the easiest way anyone can go out right now and start making a difference in the fight against noxious weeds within our state.
EDDMapSWest provides the ability to:
- View data by county, state, or the entire US;
