Guidelines for Mapping Wetlands in South Africa (Job et al., 2018)

The manual provides useful guidelines and a tool for wetland practitioners to improve procedures for mapping wetlands using a set of standards for data collection and storage, so that data feeds directly into national level databases such as the National Wetland Inventory, and that informs national policy tools such as National Freshwater Ecosystem Priority Areas project (NFEPA).

Several additional tools including datasheets and checklists are provided. A step by step guide to basic delineation using free and licensed mapping software is shared in the appendices.

The manual (27mb) can be downloaded using the following link:
