GPS Coordinates of All LTER and GLBRC Features

GPS coordinates for many LTER and GLBRC point features such as plot corners, sampling stations, lysimeters, etc.

This datatable is part of the KBS LTER Global Positioning System Data dataset. The KBS LTER uses submeter accuracy GPS to record many locations such as plot corners, gas flux chamber, leaf litter trap locations, soil water samplers (lysimeter), etc.
