About the IAPP database
The IAPP database contains invasive plant surveys, treatments, and activity plans for the entire province of BC. The comprehensive data in IAPP is entered by a wide variety of user groups (ministries, regional districts, weed committees, forest licensees, utilities, conservation groups, federal departments and others) on an on-going basis. The data can be queried on a large number of criteria, using one or more of the 11 'canned' queries. In addition, data managers may run and print any one of the 5 activity summary reports.
Access to the data in IAPP is password-restricted to authorized users. To apply for access, fill out the electronic form. (Note that you need an IDIR or a business BCeID before you can apply for access.) See also our IAPP faq page
About IAPP Map Display
The IAPP data can be viewed on-line in IAPP Map Display, where you can turn the individual
layers for surveys, mechanical, chemical, and biological treatments on and off,
as well as use a number of tools that let you highlight specific species and/or
specific treatments on the map.
IAPP Field Forms app for iPad
iPad field forms can be downloaded from the appstore.
Paper field forms
Although it is entirely possible for users to create field forms that work well for their needs, we have a set of downloadable paper forms available as well.
