Level 0

General Description

Individuals without an iMapInvasives account (i.e., Level 0) can access the Public Map of any iMapInvasives program to view watershed and county-level distribution maps for featured species. Featured species found on each Public Map represent a sampling of invasive species chosen for display by each specific iMapInvasives program.

The Public Map available from each participating iMapInvasives program will likely not display all the invasive species tracked by their program.

To view distribution data for additional species not shown on an iMapInvasives Public Map, a registered user account is required. Request a free login account here.

Examples of Level 0 users include members of the general public.
