Method step description:

  1. Students from each high school organized a series of day-long community surveys in their local neighbourhoods. Participants, guided by local ISC Early Detection Technicians and Student Mentors, visited various locations where they were given photo guides and assigned a route to follow during collection events. Along each route, they were tasked with identifying the target species and taking 1-3 photos of them using GPS-enabled mobile phones. Details, describing every observation of the 21 invasive species of interest, were recorded using a digital data collection form during each community collection event. Participants uploaded the images captured on mobile phones and were encouraged to click their locations using a Google map, embedded in the form, to assign latitude and longitude to each observation. The form’s design was based on the HISC pest reporting form.
