National Invasive Species Information Management System (NISIMS)

The National Invasive Species Information Management System (NISIMS) database provides a comprehensive tool for managers to use to standardize collection of invasive species and treatment data. Managers can measure project successes/failures, maximizing the lessons learned, and identify cost effective best management practices to be used on future projects.

It is the first BLM system with seamless tools to collect scientific data in remote locations throughout all BLM lands and to feed that data regularly into a national, official BLM geospatial database.

NISIMS reduces redundant data entry and makes data collection and reporting of invasive species more efficient. It is designed to collect infestation & treatment data in a standardized format.

Presently, NISIMS only collects data associated with plant species; however, plans are underway to allow the system to be able to collect data on all taxa.
