Download the EDDMapS West app

The free Early Detection and Distribution Mapping System (EDDMapS) West app for iPhone and Android makes it easy to report invasive species sightings instantly from the field.

It's quick and simple. Register for free as an EDDMapS user, fill out the reporting form with details about the sighting, take a few photos, and hit the Submit button. Your report will immediately be sent to the appropriate state authority for verification. Confirmed reports appear on distribution maps for the reported species and can be accessed for free by all EDDMapS West users.

Just a few minutes of your time is all it takes to protect vital wildlife habitat, agriculture, and recreation from the threat of non-native invasive species.

The EDDMapS West iPhone app was developed by Chuck Bargeron (Center for Invasive Species and Ecosystem Health, University of Georgia). The EDDMapS West Android app was developed by Rustico David (Center for Invasive Species and Ecosystem Health, University of Georgia). Both apps are based on a publication of the same name by Emily Rindos (Center for Invasive Species Management, Montana State University).
