Ground Count Techniques; an Introduction
Ground count techniques can be divided into total counts and sample counts, carried out on foot or by vehicle. Sample counts by vehicle can be divided into terrain counts, following the same principles as sample counts on foot, and road counts, whereby the sample count is restricted to the existing road-system. The same principles apply to total ground counts on foot as to those conducted by vehicle, with the only difference that dense vegetation may not be accessible by vehicle.
