Electronic Technology Speeds Forest Survey
Abstract:Electronic data recorders have been successfully applied in field activities of the continuous forest survey. A new data-entry system minimizes the transition trained cruisers must make from tally sheets to digital entry. Telecommunications, data capture, and subsequent processing are reliable and efficient. Keypunching costs, time requirements, and associated errors are eliminated. The recorders are light, compact, and can communicate with a variety of computer hardware.
