We're pushing the mapping boundary by offering some new creative techniques for your weed mapping needs.
As part of a collaborative effort between the US Forest Service, the University of Georgia and the University of Idaho, Net Maps was born. The focus of NetMaps is to get susceptibility maps on the ground for some of our western states to use in their war on noxious weeds. These maps have been designed to aid field workers in the task of finding weed populations. Using the latest science technologies, the University of Idaho has been able to identify sites that are more susceptible to particular weed species. You can use these maps in our online GIS to help determine where to look for weeds. It helps save you and your agency time and money by conserving your man power hours on the ground.
Our NetMaps system is comprised of 2 parts. First we have the data collection part which allows land managers to use our ArcGIS data collector to collect weed areas (polygons) and get that data to the cloud. From here, the data is used to fine tune our models and to help improve our accuracy with the results. The second part is our online GIS where you can see and interact with our models and data. This online system is FREE to use and enables land managers to print their own maps, track weed infestations, measure sites, and more.
