Data Entry & Voucher Photo Upload
Data Entry - Options
There are several options for volunteers to submit data for this project; please submit all data within a week of collection if possible - this enables us to better direct other survey efforts in the area!
1) All GPS files will need to be submitted by e-mail. If you are unsure of how to download files from your GPS, consult the instructions for your GPS make/model - many instructions are available on the internet. Please be sure to send us both waypoint and tracklog files if they are recorded separately. We require waypoint files - tracklogs are optional but quite helpful!
2) If you are completing printed datasheets in the field, you have 3 options to submit them:
*PLEASE submit your datasheets & associated files as soon as possible after your survey! We are unable to account for your survey effort unless we have completed datasheets and associated GPS (coordinate) files and photograph vouchers. Please submit all data files immediately as you complete surveys (electronically via your phone, when possible), or as soon as you return home from conducting surveys.
