As described on the Report-A Weed website: “The mobile Report-a-Weed BC app is available free of charge for iPhone and Android platforms. It lets you report weed sightings anywhere in BC, in just a few simple steps. Your report will go to one of BC’s invasive plant specialists, who will coordinate follow-up activities with the appropriate local authorities. The app can be used off-line to create submissions as well; simply complete the report, click ‘Submit’ and the report will be sent as soon as you are back in cell coverage. Features include a map of BC that displays the 500 most recent submission details, statistics on the number of locations reported for each species, and the ability to search through images of all 202 invasive plant species on the list. Simply take a picture, indicate the infestation size with the handy slider, and add your contact info (this will only be necessary the first time you make a report).”
