World Wide Web Photo Point Monitoring Manual
Photopoint Monitoring is a standardized procedure, developed largely by Dr. Fred Hall of the U.S. Forest Service, for taking precisely replicable photographs of resources that require long term management (Hall, 1997). Photopoint Monitoring is both a qualitative and quantitative tool that can assist resource managers in detecting unacceptable conditions in target resources before severe or irreversible changes occur, and allow time to implement corrective actions. The technique can also be used to assess the success or failure of management decisions based on the use of clearly defined indicators and standards.
