Chapter 3: Macro-level survey design

Part 1. Foundations

Macro-level survey designs are only needed if you're sampling a very large area, much bigger than can be covered by a single camera trap array. So this module will be more useful to some researchers than others. This video explains what a macro-level design does, why spatial balance is important, and describes Halton points, a quasi-random sequence of two-dimensional points that can be used to choose macro-level survey points when the total number of surveys you can do is not known in advance.

Part 2. Software for macro-level survey design

This video takes you through the use of a R Shiny application allowing you to upload your survey region as a ashape file and generate macro-level survey points using Halton points.
