This web mapping application has been developed to track the distribution of the Polyphagous Shot Hole Borer (PSHB) in Southern California. PSHB is an invasive pest which attacks many species of trees and carries a pathogenic fungus, posing a major risk to native woodlands, urban trees and commercial avocado orchards. IGIS has created both a public site for viewing the distribution of the pest and a secure site for researchers to edit and add new data.
IGIS is a new ANR Program established in 2012 to provide GIS support, software, data and training to ANR.
