A re-assessment of bridal creeper (Asparagus asparagoides (L.) W.Wight) distribution in the Wickepin Shire of Western Australia, found comparisons between surveys conducted in 1993 and 1995 impractical because of the different techniques used. Deficiencies in present weed location recording and subsequent data mapping are greatly enhanced by the use of GPS units in the field.
