    Description

    Successful control of invasive species requires a clear picture of the spatial extent of infestations. The latest mapping technology involves coupling global position systems and handheld computers running geographic information systems software in the field. A series of workshops applying this technology to mapping weeds was developed and presented to Weed Management Areas across Arizona. Workshops were designed to be robust, flexible, and inexpensive. Participants were strategically selected to enhance material retention and to foster networking outside of formal instruction. Workshop success was due, in large part, to the continued commitment of the participants, especially members of the Tonto Weed Management Area.
