Who Uses the GRS Densitometer?

The GRS Densitometerâ„¢ , based on sales within just the last two years, is currently used in over 35 countries in every continent except Antarctica (view map). GRS Densitometer users represent a wide range of resource management oriented agencies, companies, and academic institutions.  These users recognize the benefits of using a standardized, objective, easy-to-use sampling tool that helps them develop accurate, detailed, layer-specific, and inexpensive species/landscape feature-specific cover field data, whether collected by the student, educator, researcher, volunteer, seasonal technician, or experienced professional.  The GRS Densitometer used in combination with linear transect sampling bridges the field cover estimation gap that can so often comprise the quality of field cover estimates.
