Abstract

The Metadata (MD) table in the FIREMON database is used to record any information about the sampling strategy or data collected using the FIREMON sampling procedures. The MD method records metadata pertaining to a group of FIREMON plots, such as all plots in a specific FIREMON project. FIREMON plots are linked to metadata using a unique metadata identifier that is entered in the MD table and in the PD data for each FIREMON plot. Metadata pertaining to a single plot are recorded in the comments field on the FIREMON PD data form.
