Terrestrial Invasive Species Observations

Multi-partner effort to record GPS locations of terrestrial invasive species on DNR lands and other locations in Minnesota. Data is downloaded from EDDMapS Midwest (https://www.eddmaps.org/midwest/). Data from EDDMapS includes all data previously collected by the Minnesota DNR and uploaded to EDDMapS in 2016. From 2016 forward data from MN DNR staff was collected directly into EDDMapS. EDDMapS also contains data from other organizations and individuals in Minnesota.

dsCurrentRef Time Period of Content date indicates the date which the user can be confident of accuracy and completeness of the dataset. This inventory is ongoing. Some areas will be inventoried for specific plants one year and then gone through for more detail later. As control treatments are applied, later inventories should show a reduction in numbers of plants.
