Design Goals

The primary design goal of INVADERS database project is to create a practical and easy to use tool for managers of vegetation/weed programs. It is intended for natural resource program managers that do not have the time to learn to use complicated software packages, it was not designed for computer experts. The features of the web interface to meet that goal include:

  • Ease of use, learning time is less than 20 minutes.
  • Will run on entry level personal computers.
  • Available at no cost.
  • You can query database using any published name for the weed, including Weed Science Society of America common names.
  • Database includes all plants, tells whether plant is exotic or native.
  • Shows regulatory status of the plant: noxious weed or whether the plant is on a protected/sensitive species list.
