Designs loaded

Several designs have been loaded into the Sample Designer to date, including many designs using the CHaMP protocol and the Watershed Health and Salmon Recovery protocol from the Washington Department of Ecology. Several more designs are still on the waiting list to be uploaded. There are currently 43 sample designs in the tool, 16 of which are finalized. We recommend increased support in the coming year to load additional designs. Since initial development, we have also expanded the Sample Designer tool to support creation and documentation of non-GRTS (non-probabilistic) designs. Currently, this support is limited to ‘opportunistic’ and ‘census’ survey types, but could be expanded if needed.
