Resources required for an IWC assessment
Instructions and guidance for applying the IWC method
This manual is a quick start guide to using the IWCFAT and includes a link to the tool. The tool is a web app tailored for smart phones and tablets and works with most web browsers on the device. It captures IWC data in the field, negating the need to use the field data sheets in the IWC assessment procedure, however it is important that this methods document is still followed. Data collected using the IWCFAT can be uploaded directly to the IWC Data Management System.
