Maybe doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results isn’t the definition of insanity; maybe it’s good science. It's our job as environmental managers to know what is a trend and what is an anomaly, what is constant and what is dynamic. In that way, we're always doing the same thing twice. Or more. We're part scientist, part engineer, and another part statistician. Because it combines Garmin GPS/GLONASS mapping capability and Android™ apps on Google Play™, including GIS maps, the Monterra has the capability of becoming our three-ring project binder, tube of maps, value tabulator, trend spotter, HD visual record keeper, and weather radio, all wrapped in one environment-proof case. With Monterra, I can find the same spill, measure the same concentration level, record it the same way month-after-month, and hope for better results.
