PestMapper combines with other project information

MAIN Trust maps pests - PestMapper is running well, and we are finding that groups like the idea of adding whatever background layer they need to their map. These maps can be printed as a pdf, as well as the graphs of results

Orokonui Ecosanctuary has a general map which shows the movements of Kiwi chicks which have GPS. How wonderful is that.... and it couples with a PestMapper and tunnel tracker. 

Other PestMapper maps have background layers to show where Key Native Ecosystems are in relation to the project, local land owners, DOC land, farm tracks, hazards, or indicate weed-control or planting areas. As you can edit layers and update information independently, you can see whatever layers you wish together on a map. And it can stay private!

Tell us what kind of pest trapping and mapping you do - would any of these tools help you to manage a project?
