Description: A. Project Goals ¿ The goal of this project is to partner with the Recipient to support a graduate-level internship to develop a new field mapping application for monitoring invasive exotic plants in 11 parks in the Southern Plains. The Recipient has specific expertise in development of these data management solutions. B. Project Objectives ¿ (1) A new field mapping and database application will be developed to keep pace with the current exotic plant monitoring protocol (v2.0), and recent changes to geographic information systems (GIS) software (ArcPad now obsolete), improved geographic position system (GPS) technology, and new DOI IT requirements (MS-Windows 10). (2) A ¿cross-walk¿ approach will also be developed to ensure that previous data collected for these parks will be compatible with the current protocol such that long-term trends on weed infestations can be reliably determined.
