How to collect images

GFL student participants take photos of their local forests, and record data about them using the Student Photo Form. Then, they submit their photos and forms to our website by clicking on the links below. GFL will later use this for a visual analysis database scientists can use.

To collect images, you must first go into a forest region of your choice and take some photographs. 

As you take the photographs, fill out this  PAPER FORM with the requested information and then transfer the photos and the data to an online form. Alternatively, you can fill out the online form directly on your cell phone.

See the slide show below for help with some of the items on the form.
