MonteCarloSamplingIZ-class: Class '"MonteCarloSamplingIZ"'

Description Objects from the Class Slots Methods Author(s) See Also Examples


This virtual class exists to be combined with an areal sampling class of choice. This class facilitates creation of a new areal sampling method that employs one of the Monte Carlo subsampling methods supported through subclasses of "MonteCarloSampling". Generally it will only be of interest to someone desiring to write extensions to sampSurf in the form of Monte Carlo subsampling on down logs or standing trees within areal methods. Please see the class definition for horizontalPointCMCIZ for an example of how this can be combined with an areal method.
