The fastest method for ground-based forest inventories for biomass & volume
Aluminum tubes shaped for eye sockets, clear labels, glass prisms protected by caps, and belt loop cases of 5 allow anyone to conduct variable radius inventories without push or pull positioning errors, BAF size errors, glass chipping, or equipment losses.
Compatible with all smartphone or tablet camera lenses via included clips. Off-set tree stem images can be viewed via digital grids to more easily view “in” or “out” status. Off-set images can also be viewed by multiple people at once and images can be magnified on the screen. Furthermore, off-set images can be digitally photographed for auditors, supervisors, and others.
GLOBALLY APPLICABLE FOR ACCURATE & SPEEDY INVENTORIES
Wide BAF of 1-25 m2/ha applies to all global forest types and also enables “big BAF” method of 3-5x count BAF for height measure BAF. “Big BAF” method is the world’s most time efficient method to accurately measure forest biomass/volume at given sampling intensities.
Sold in sets of 5 glass wedge prisms (enclosed in 5 anodized aluminum tubes w/ anodized
aluminum covers, including 1 plastic lens clip and 1 bamboo lanyard, all contained in leather
belt-loop cases) at costs equivalent to 4 conventional glass wedge prisms in leather sleeves.
