Data entry
Abstract
This chapter summarizes the conversion of field- or laboratory-collected data into an electronic form. Techniques to make this conversion as quick and error-free as possible are illustrated, including descriptions of data entry software. Finally, the use of field data recorders and newer technological advances such as optical character recognition for data entry are discussed.
