Mapping and Data

The Mapping & Data (M&D) Committee puts your invasive plant inventory, survey, and treatment data to work! Our ultimate goal is to help reduce the impacts of invasive species in our area through coordinated prioritization, analyses, implementation, and communication. We envision a data sharing network made up of CWMA committees and partners, working together to provide increased access to invasive species data and maps relevant to your EDRR work. We promote data standardization and the use of various data collection platforms, especially iMapInvasives Oregon (if you’re unfamiliar with iMapInvasives, check out these handy iMapInvasives training videos).

We have defined goals and objectives focused on:

Untitled design

  • Information sharing
  • Improving data platform(s)
  • Increasing data contributions
  • Promoting data quality
  • Using the data

New partner feedback is also very welcome.  We are actively working on the following projects:

We meet 4-5 times per year and maintain an email list to coordinate our activities. The email list has a message archive available for review should you desire to get up to speed on our activities.
