Business rules needed to guide field-samplers in subsampling & changing height cut-off
From a Peet Email:
"Further, it may be necessary to develop guidelines
for when such modification is permissible, thought this is probably more a
contractual matter for EEP than a real change in the protocol.
Regardless, the manual should be modified to require the rationale and to
advise the guidelines may be set by EEP."
This spins off of bug 2862, which addresses documenting why and how the subsampling was done. This bug is about guiding people in how to decide to subsample and what percent/cut-off is appropriate. This is a sensitive issue, perhaps, in that overly aggressive subsampling will speed things up for contractors, but may decrease the accuracy of the sample.
