Abstract: This technical note describes the use of Differential Global Positioning System (DGPS) techniques to locate sampling sites and to delineate sampling transects within bottornland hardwood (BLH) forested wetlands. DGPS positioning techniques provide biologists and field scientists with coordinate positions of sample sites throughout the world. A common misconception is that GPS will not provide positions inside a forested area (i.e. BLH). This technical note describes techniques used by scientists at the U.S. Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station (WES) to provide reliable XY coordinate positions within a BLH forested wetland.
