Future Plans


1. Area Frame Sampling

  • An Area Frame (AF) is a special case of cluster sampling.
  • The Sampling Units (SUs) are areas of land commonly called Segments or area Parcels
  • The goal is to divide the entire land area of interest into SUs and to select a sample of such segments.
  • An AF is suitable for general purpose sampling and the best one in case of land associated variables like crops, yield, orchards & forests etc.
2. Area Estimation through "GIS/RS"
