    Abstract

    Preparation of vegetation maps from ground surveys as the first step in a field study is discussed. Depending upon the degree of accuracy required, various types of equipment are suggested for use in a mapping survey. Details are presented on station or point selections with a discussion of procedures and calculation of angles and distances using an illustrated example. Additional information is presented about kinds of information, explanatory material, and symbols used in constructing vegetation maps.
