Explain user levels and what their purpose is.


There are several user levels built into iMapInvasives with each level gaining more access to information available in the database. User levels are cumulative – each higher step gains additional functionality while also inheriting the permissions of lower levels. Typically, each step up in the hierarchy gains more access to data entry, query capabilities, or dowloading privileges. Each agency/organization can have several members with different user levels, but only top-level program managers or directors have the greatest access (Levels 8 and 9).

For more details, see our "User Levels" page.

The Pennsylvania iMapInvasives Program is a partnership of the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy, the Pennsylvania Natural Heritage Program, and NatureServe.
