A project in iMapInvasives has two basic functions:
A way to organize observation, survey, treatment, or infestation management data into a group that can be easily searched or downloaded. Examples include tracking data collected for a specific season of field work or for work on a specific grant.
A way for multiple agencies to submit and share observation, survey, treatment, or infestation management data for a common initiative.
While one user will be the Project Lead, any other iMapInvasives users can be added to the project regardless of their organizational affiliations. Users that are listed as project members can enter data for the project, but are confined by their user level in the type of data they can enter (i.e., users with Level 2 (or higher) access can add observation data to the project, users with Level 4 access can enter survey data, etc). Learn more about User Levels. The Project Lead can download all this data and redistribute to project partners, if desired.
