We are still looking for an option to map effectively the distribution of one of the worst invasive species. I fact we are discovering more and more isolated population which haven been detected from ground surveys. Ground surveys are very expensive and no very effective. We still think that the best option would be a survey from the air. Helicopter has been very useful but very expensive too. We are looking for options which allow us to balance cost and effectiveness. If you know any information about it please let me know, we are open to contact people or companies who can help us.
Thanks for your help
