Monitoring Visit Basics

Property monitoring is part of a Stewardship activity. Monitoring visit records can be added after your physical visit, or well ahead of time and used as a way to plan your visit schedules.

Find the Stewardship activity for the property you want monitor and click on the Monitoring menu on the left side of the window. This window contains a list of all the monitoring visits for the property. Clicking on the date of a visit in the list will take you to the edit page for the visit. Clicking on the plus button in the upper left corner will add a new visit and take you immediately to its edit page.

On the right side of the Visit page is a map showing the route of the currently selected visit (if applicable) and any points of interest that may have been recorded during the visit. The map updates as you hover the mouse over the dates of the visits in the list. The data shown in the map for a visit can only be edited in the edit page of the visit.

Click on a visit date or add a new visit to show the visit edit page.

The edit page has a few different tabs. The Summary tab contains the information about landowner contact, personnel, and summary of the visit. 

The map on the right side of the page shows the Tract boundaries connected to the Stewardship activity and any other geography defined for the Stewardship activity like special-use areas or photo points. These shapes are not editable from this page.

To the map, you may add points of interest related to this specific visit using the editing tools at the top left of the map. Perhaps you took new photos or wanted to note any changes you observed. You can also add lines to trace your route. More information about editing the maps in LANDSCAPE can be found in the article: Map Editing.

The Objectives tab contains the specific restrictions you monitor or actions you undertake during the visit. These objectives can be associated with baseline condition statements and used as a checklist for every visit.

The Documents and Costs tab has places to store critical documents or track monitoring costs. The Document section could be used to store the final PDF file of the monitoring report.


Monitoring Reports

You can generate a merged report using any Monitoring Visit report template you have defined. Press the Generate Report menu in the right corner and select the report template to use.

The report can merge all of the data that you have entered into the monitoring visit. So, you can choose to generate it before the physical visit and take a paper copy with you, or generate it afterward to have a neatly printed version of your report for archival purposes.
