Survey Protocol

Reporting on EDDMapS

Surveying with us can be done at your own pace, and as frequently as you're able to!

Invasive Phragmites grows so aggressively and is very destructive to wetlands and shorelines. Surveying is a very important part of controlling Phragmites, because it helps us track where it's spreading within our communities. It's also a great way to spend time outdoors!

Take your phone out now to follow along with the next few steps. If you would like to try this later, all this information is written in the protocol on our website!

Before you begin surveying, you'll need to download the EDDMapS app and create an account.

### How to Make an Account

Next

Before you make a report, you must first make sure you log in every time!

Now that you have an account, we'll go over how to make a report. This is what you'll be doing while you're out in the field surveying.

### How to Make a Report

##### Beside area, you will put the size of the stand in hectares or square meters. Determine the area by multiplying the length and width of the stand. A good way to estimate these distances is by using the length of your footsteps, called "paces".

### How to Make a Report

Next

# of paces × 1 pace length = estimate of distance

One pace is every two steps.

To use this, walk along a distance and count how many paces you take. Then, multiply the number of paces you counted by your pace length, and you have an estimate of the distance!

Distance of 10 paces ÷ 10 = 1 pace length

Find the length of your pace by walking 10 paces normally (which is 20 steps), and then mark and record the distance you traveled. Divide that distance by 10 to get the length of 1 of your paces. You can repeat this process 3 times and take the average to get a more accurate value. Record this value, it is your pace length!

2 Steps = 1 Pace

##### Beside area, you will put the size of the stand in hectares or square meters. Determine the area by multiplying the length and width of the stand. A good way to estimate these distances is by using the length of your footsteps, called "paces".

Width

Length

Length × Width = Area

Use paces to calculate the area of a stand.

Walk the length of a stand and count your paces, then multiply the number of paces by your pace length. Repeat this for the width of the stand.

Now that you've estimated both distances, multiply them together and you've calculated the stand's area!
