Portable Data Recorders in Forest Research
Abstract:A small handheld data recorder has been a complete success during its first year of use in hydrologic and silviculture research studies. The recorder is user-programmed to operate in different data-entry and telecommunication formats so it can communicate with different terminals and computers. This new data-collection system eliminates both field forms and the keypunching and verifying process, reduces errors, and greatly reduces the time between data collection and analysis. The data recorder is simple to use. Anyone who can complete field-data forms should be able to use the recorder after one to two hours of instruction.
