New in HOORC's Library: Photo-Point Monitoring Handbook
The Photo-Point Monitoring Handbook, parts A and B, published by the U.S. Department of Agriculture Forest Service, describes methods for documenting change in vegetation and soil through repeat photography. Part A discusses field techniques such as the use of maps to find sampling locations, documentation of equipment and weather conditions, and how to achieve precision in repeat photography. Part B provides guidance in selecting equipment, analyzing change through interpretation of photographs, and recording information and mounting photographs. You can find the handbook in HOORC's Library.
