TechTip: GIS Invader

GIS Invader is an interactive geographic information system for registering aquatic alien species and creating distribution maps, developed by the Zoological Institute of the Regional Biological Invasions Center (RBIC) of the Russian Academy of Sciences.

The GIS database consists of four parts: a list of taxa, a list of geographic locations (sampling stations), a list of taxa registered at those locations, and a bibliography. The GIS Invader software package consists of two programs: Invader DataBase Editor for work with the database, and Invader MapViewer for the creation of interactive distribution maps. Map sets are available for Oceania, Asia, southern and northwest Africa, and Latin America. For more information, visit the GIS Invader website
