1Cal-IPC Invasive Plant Inventory
DescriptionThe California Invasive Plant Inventory assesses the impact, invasiveness, and distribution of invasive plants in California. As of 2013, there are 210 species on the Inventory. It was used as the basis for the species in the CalWeedMapper online tool.
Quality ChecksSpecies are assessed based on 13 criteria and then reviewed by a committee of experts.

1Suitable range maps for invasive plants
Deliverable TypeMap
DescriptionMaps showing projected future range of 79 invasive plants, based on current (2010) and future (2050) climate. Models used an ensemble of 17 Global Circulation Models from PRISM and were run using (open source) Maxent software. Maps are posted on CalWeedMapper (calweedmapper.calflora.org).
SourceCalflora (www.calflora.org), numerous datasets collected from agencies working on invasive plant management. Datasets were uploaded to Calflora and most are available to the public.
FormatAvailable online at calweedmapper.calflora.org. ASCII copies backed up at Cal-IPC.
Processing and WorkflowDatasets provided by numerous land managers were uploaded to Calflora. Models used an ensemble of 17 Global Circulation Models from PRISM and were run using (open source) Maxent software. Variables used in the models were the 19 temperature and precipitation variables from Bioclim (worldclim.org/bioclim), calculated from the PRISM data. Models were run using 2010 and 2050 climate.
Quality ChecksData contributors were contacted as necessary to answer questions. We used data collected since 1980 to reduce the chance that the results were no longer accurate. After uploading, data were compared against expert knowledge data on the plants' range in California.
Backup and StorageData stored on Calflora. Model results stored on CalWeedMapper and backed up at Host GIS and Cal-IPC
RestrictionsSome datasets were provided to us with the restriction that they be used for this project only and not made publicly accessible due to privacy concerns for private land.

2CalWeedMapper
Deliverable TypeApplications and Tools
DescriptionCalWeedMapper is an online tool that provides maps of 210 invasive plants from the California Invasive Plant Inventory, as well as maps of suitable range in 2010 and 2050 climate for 79 species. CalWeedMapper also provides users the ability to generate reports of recommended eradication, surveillance, and containment targets based on the user's selected area.
Processing and WorkflowMaps show two types of data: expert knowledge data collected through meetings with land managers and occurrence (GIS) data from compiled datasets in Calflora (www.calflora.org).
Backup and StorageThe website is backed up at Host GIS and Cal-IPC.

3Strategic plans for invasive plant management
Deliverable TypeConservation Plan / Design / Framework
DescriptionStrategic plans list eradication and surveillance species for a multi-county region, as agreed upon by local land managers. Most species are based on the Cal-IPC Inventory and maps in CalWeedMapper. The purpose of these plans is to enable land managers to apply for grants for coordinated projects in their region. The emphasis is on species that can be eradicated within five years and species that are just outside the region and have a high probability of invading.

5Surveillance Outreach Guides
Deliverable TypeMethodology / Protocol
DescriptionWe will generate standard templates and content for regional training materials supporting identification of species determined to be early detection and rapid response targets. To be completed 2014.

6WHIPPET online tool
Deliverable TypeApplications and Tools
DescriptionWHIPPET is an online tool that helps land managers determine which invasive plant populations are the highest priority for eradication. The tool scores populations based on their impact, spread, and feasibility of control. The user can select their region of concern and the species to consider from among the 210 listed in the California Invasive Plant Council Inventory. Beta version to be released fall 2013.
