Description: Mapped plots are used for the nation forest inventory conducted by the U.S. Forest Service. Mapped plots are also useful foro single ownership inventoires. Mapped plots can handle boundary overlap and can aprovide less variable estimates for specified forest conditions. Mapping is a good fit for fixed plot inventories where the fixed area plot is used for both mapping and tree sampling. However, mappng can be done with a colocated fixed area plot even though the tree inventory uses variable plots. In fact, the tree measurement plots can be completely decoupled from the plots used for measuring condition proportions, although this is not recommended.
Keywords: boundary overlap, horizontal point samples
