The MISIN smartphone app provides a mobile solution for the capture of invasive species field observation data. You can play an important role in the early detection and rapid response to new invasive threats in your area by contributing invasive species observations to the MISIN database. These data are then shared with an emerging network of database efforts for the tracking of invasive threats and are used by land managers to help make informed decisions regarding the management and impact of invasive species. Your data can be browsed through the MISIN website at: http://www.misin.msu.edu.
•Identify and report 400+ invasive plant and animal species
•Capture and submit species observations from the field
•Include images taken in the field with your observation
•View real-time species distribution maps
•Browse images and species information on top Midwest invaders
The MISIN Invasive Species reporting smart phone application was developed by the Applied Spatial Ecology and Technical Services Laboratory at Michigan State University.
** Please remember to submit any data currently in your Data Manager prior to performing this update **
Fixes: Corrects an issue behind the scenes where the database was not showing how many photos were attached to each record (mobile only)
Ratings and Reviews
Can’t complete registration
I’ve tried several times to register (and used 2 different email addresses to do so), but an email link to complete registration never came to me. Checked junk mail and filters, not there either. Not sure if using this app without completing registration actually results in reporting invasives or if I’m wasting my time. Please fix app now or I will be deleting it!
Works fine for me
The register page wouldn’t load on the app so I just registered on their website and then logged in on the app and it worked fine for me. Location & maps are accurate too. Very easy to use and has a lot of information about the invasive as well as being able to report if they are present or absent.
Just not reliable
I really want this App to work and help provide information to the various groups that use the data, but frequently the App crashes, locks up, or refuses to login.
Developer Response ,
