Each monitoring plot should be conducted from a single, central point, radiating outward to cover a radius of 5.64m, with total area of 100m

Each photo point should be acquired with 360 degree panorama using Photosynth App. If this is not possible, a photo should be collected with view finder directed to each of North, South, East and West. These must be labelled appropriately
