Re-Locating the Transects

Re-Locating the Transects

It is most important to provide a set of instructions that will allow a future worker to re-locate the transect. There are examples on record where it has not been possible to find potentially valuable page 87 permanent quadrats. Maps, vertical aerial or oblique photographs are useful for showing transect positions. The magnetic bearing of the transect centre-line should also be recorded as well as bearings to prominent landscape features if possible. In some places it may help to surround the marker posts with cairns (cf. Turbott 1948).
