Managing invasive species here in Washington State is complex due to the number and types of pathways through which species are introduced. A number of local, state and federal agencies and organizations work to prevent the introduction and spread of invasive species, physically control or eradicate them, monitor their distribution, and understand their characteristics. With this app, the public can help to identify and report invasive species before they become a bigger problem. The goal of this mobile app is to make species identification easier and help improve detection and reporting of harmful invasive species statewide.
I worked closely with our developer and project manager to create an easy-to-use interface that will allow the user to effortlessly help capture data about invasive species in Washington State.
- GPS and Photo Tools Easy species reporting uses your GPS to capture your current location and an image of your sightings.
