Quality The accuracy report varies for each dataset contributed to our websites and for each project these data reside within.

The NIISS GODM system uses controlled vocabulary based data standards to populate pick lists from which end users choose a result. These controlled vocabularies ensure data standardization. Our system also uses quality assurance / quality ... View entire text
Access Constraints No access and/or use constraints that are not otherwise handled by the data system. Some data have been flagged as sensitive data and these data are shown in detail to those who uploaded the data but are only shown as “fuzzed” data to the level the contributor specified when flagging the data as sensitive. Levels of fuzzy data can be at various levels of quarter quadrat grids across the United States and the world.
Use Constraints Data use: see (http://www.niiss.org/cwis438/UserManagement/NIISSDataUse.php)

(1) The quality and completeness of data cannot be guaranteed. Users employ these data at their own risk.

(2)Users must publicly acknowledge, in conjunction with the use of the data, the data providers whose invasive species data they have used. Data providers may require additional attribution of specific collections within their institution.
