Creation and Implementation of a Great Lakes Invasive Species Data Collection and Reporting System: The purpose of this agreement is to create a Great Lakes Early Detection Network, citizen science monitoring effort, by modifying an interface of the Global Organism Detection and Monitoring (GODM) federal database to be used by parks and the public to report invasive species and to generate modules that auto-report locations of new invasive species once they have been entered into the database. The Great Lakes Early Detection Network will foster invasive species data sharing, increase awareness of invasive species issues, and improve rapid response efforts to new populations of invasive plants in the region. Both an on-line invasive species data base and an email-based early detection warning system will be created for the Great Lakes Region. A centralized database and early detection system will ensure that all stakeholders are operating with the same dataset, which represents the current state of knowledge of invasive species populations in the region and throughout the U.S.

Additional Information on Eligibility
This is a "Notice of Intent" of a single source task agreement award to the University of Wisconsin, Madison under the Great Lakes Cooperative Ecosystem Studies Unit (CESU). The cooperator for this project was selected based on creation of similar projects involving citzen science monitoring and extensive experience with an existing federal data base. This project is a continuation/modification of an existing federal datatbase project, the Global Organism Detection and Monitoring system (GODM). The GODM is an existing database developed by government agencies (NASA and USGS)and several university researchers, including University of Wisconsin-Madison to provide a web-based solution in real-time data from a broad spectrum of users on the distribution and abundance of non-native species, including attributes of their habitats for predictive spatial modeling of current and potential distributions.
