Species Data
Data has been compiled for each invasive species for which there is comprehensive and confirmed occurrences. The data is available below for each species presented as zipped geographic information system (GIS) files (.dbf, .shp and .shx extensions when unzipped) as unprojected files. The data is also available as database files (.dbf extension when unzipped) viewable in Excel, FoxPro and other spreadsheet/database programs. When downloaded the GIS files have "-dd" in their name to distinguish them from the database file which carries the tag "-final.dbf". In addition, an abstract/quick facts document has been prepared (as a PDF document) to further familiarize the user with each species.
