  2. If you are less familiar with the methods you may want to take a particular look at:
    1. SfM Guide for Instructors and Investigators 
    2. TLS Field Methods Manual
  3. Prepare your presentation if you volunteered to give one during the Community Examples session on Thursday August 17. Presentations should be 5 minutes so we can have a couple minutes of questions. We recommend preparing just 5-7 slides. (detailed session agenda)
