IAPP help and FAQs
Having trouble with Map Display or its Report-A-Weed function?
The Internet Settings Guide (PDF, 322KB) will help you customize your Internet Tools settings in order to prevent those unwanted blank screens, and will also enable the display of the Map Display Highlight queries.
Regardless of the implementation of these settings, users should always ensure an up-to-date anti-virus application is active at all times.
We have conducted hands-on IAPP training sessions around the province since the inception of IAPP in 2005. For details on hosting such a session, please visit our Invasive Alien Plant Program Database Page.
Access to the IAPP application requires either an IDIR for provincial government staff or a business BCeID for all other users. Please visit our Invasive Alien Plant Program Database Page for more information on how to request access to IAPP.
There are three levels of access in IAPP:
- Viewer - you will have authorization to view data in IAPP
- Data entry - you will have authorization to view and enter data, edit records you create, and extract data
- Program manager - you will have authorization to view and enter data, edit records your organization creates, extract data, and run summary reports
For further details please see the IAPP training presentation.
The IAPP Site layer as it displays in Map Display - and where it replicates every 24 hours - is available for download from the DataBC Catalogue to anyone who has a BCeID or an IDIR.
Login to DataBC then search for the Invasive Alien Plant Site. Click on the layer and download as a shapefile or KML.
Note: If the IAPP site layer or related IAPP data are published in reports, printed on maps, or placed on a website, IAPP must be credited as the source, and the date of download must be provided to indicate the date to which the information is current.
