Quality Most foot-accessible areas of Stillwell Hills were visited and many isolated outcrops/islands were visited via helicopter. Raw gps data includes survey routes. In-field collection and storage of gps positions with tagged attributes, post-processed against gps base to provide differential position fixes, export as Arcview shapefiles and attribute tables. Post-processed gps positions to sub-metre accuracy. Attributes assigned in the field based on current conditions and appearances. Taxonomy to be added after identification. Attributes accurate at the time of survey/sampling.
