Spotters Network

Spotters Network is a network of volunteer Albertans who help identify and locate invasive species in Alberta.  Using state of the art tools, the spotters are able to spot aninvasive species, snap a photo of the invader, and then send this detailed information electronically to a live mapping system, which records critical location and site information. The live mapping system for North America resides at www.EddMaps.org and the Alberta Invasive Species Council is a partner that utilizes the customized website www.EddMaps.org/Alberta.

The contributions of volunteer spotters helps to develop the high-quality database that is used to track the presence or absense of 62 invasive species in Alberta. This database provides a critical foundation to allow Alberta’s invasive species specialitists to prevent, detect, erradicate, control, or manage invasive species that could harm Alberta’s ecosystems.
