On Friday, our group finished off our project protocol (like a business plan, except more science-y); we then created our data dictionary via our GPS software, which will enable us to associate features such as text fields, menus, etc. with various points in our study site; and finally, we were introduced (as Richard noted in a previous entry) to the panoramic head.
Also, we met extensively with the bird and mapping groups to enhance our data dictionary through adding the aforementioned features, except tailored to the needs of these groups, thus maximizing the information our map will display. We plan to accompany these groups at least once on the trip to help them find their exact point (i.e. latitude and longitude) and to collect our needed data for our features.
