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 observations that may be in your Data Manager prior to updating **

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 ,
Hello - please e-mail us with more information about the issues you have been experiencing so that we can look into the further. Previous issues of registering/logging in have been addressed and should not pose a problem at this moment. Thank you.
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.
Allows you to see where others have reported sightings
I wanted to find places with invasives to fish and I’ve found them thanks to this app.
Gonna go scout out a couple local-ish lakes now 👍
