Weed management and pest animal control are ongoing challenges that impact both the environment and the economy in Australia. Invasive species like rabbits, foxes, and feral cats cause significant environmental damage, including the loss of native wildlife and the degradation of habitats. Similarly, invasive weeds such as blackberry, gorse, and serrated tussock significantly impact agricultural productivity, posing a threat to the country’s economy.

To effectively manage these challenges, the Australian government and private organisations have implemented various measures such as chemical treatments, biological control, fencing, and trapping. However, these methods can be costly and may have unintended impacts on non-target species and the environment. To combat these challenges, there is a growing need for more efficient and streamlined approaches to weed management and pest animal control.

Summit Biosecurity, developed by RapidMap, is a Software as a Service mobile mapping software that offers an effective solution for weed management and pest animal control. The advanced mapping technology and real-time data entry Smart Form features empower field teams to conduct property inspections, locate, map with GPS/GNSS, and identify significant weed infestations on private and public land.

Summit Biosecurity’s GIS capabilities enable organisations to visualise weed and pest animal infestations, track progress, and make informed decisions to optimise control measures. The software’s easy-to-use interface, coupled with real-time data entry, enhances the efficiency of data collection and management, enabling teams to respond quickly to infestations and implement appropriate control measures.

With Summit Biosecurity, organisations can manage weed and pest animal infestations more efficiently, reduce costs, and minimise unintended impacts on non-target species and the environment. This innovative software offers a reliable and effective solution for weed management and pest animal control in Australia.
