| Oregon Weed Mapper|
WeedMapper is a collection of spatial information on the distribution of weeds in the state of Oregon. The site shows known locations of noxious weeds throughout the state as collected by responsible federal, state, and local agencies. Maps are viewable at the state or county level.
WeedMapper is designed to facilitate identification, reporting, and verification of noxious weeds in Oregon. Besides providing maps of known infestations of the most serious weed pests, it also contains detailed information on each weed with photographs to assist identification.
Depending on the types of information desired, WeedMapper users can follow these links:
General information about noxious (A,B,T listed) weed species
Find the geographic distribution of a weed species
Report weed locations to ODA
Links to other websites of interest
It is our hope that WeedMapper will foster greater cooperation between landowners, federal, state, and county agencies and improve the effectiveness of weed control programs.
