A Weed Manager's Guide to Remote Sensing and GIS
Geospatial technologies such as remote sensing and geographic information systems (GIS) can reduce costs and increase the efficiency and effectiveness of weed management programs for certain weeds. This site provides information, technical guidance, and resources to help resource managers learn to use these technologies to predict weed invasion, map and monitor weeds, and educate the public about weeds. It also discusses integrating geospatial technologies into a weed management plan and using geospatial technologies to help implement the USDA Forest Service National Strategy and Implementation Plan for Invasive Species Management.
Funding to develop this website was provided by the Remote Sensing Steering Committee (Doug MacCleery, Chair). The site represents the contributions of many people. We acknowledge and thank them for their assistance (Acknowledgments).
