The GLRI Phragmites Decision Support Tool (DST) Mapper is intended to provide resource managers with information to strategically develop effective Phragmites control and invasion prevention programs in the Great Lakes coastal zone (10 km inland from the shoreline). The Mapper consists of three integrated components:

SearchingThe search option allows the user to search for a location such as a city, state, zip code, or general place name.
Navigating the mapThe scroll wheel on the mouse can be used to zoom, and in the upper left area of the tool are "+" and "-" icons to zoom in and out, respectively. You may also hold shift and drag a box to zoom. On mobile or touch screens, simply pinch the screen to zoom.
Home LocationThe crosshair button will zoom the map to your location, and the home button will center the US on the map.
Explanation displayThe Explanation box can be collapsed to display more of the mapped area.
Changing the basemap styleThe "Basemaps" sidebar allows a user to show various geographic information or landscape imagery as a background layer beneath the Map Layers.
Changing or adding map layersThe "Map Layers" sidebar allows a user to select different contextual layers.
