Sample Designs

SADA Version 4 has 22 sample design strategies. The two major categories for sample designs are initial and secondary sampling. Initial sample designs are used in empty SADA files; they are independent of previous samples and therefore may be used with prior information about the site to determine where to take the first round of samples. Secondary sample designs are used when sampled data and/or modeled results already exists in a SADA file to determine future sampling locations; they are dependent on the previous samples.

Most sample designs in SADA are available for 2d and 3d data.
