To do this I want decide the appropriate sampling design and statistical formula that helps me to compute the required sample plots. Is there a tool to do this?

Thank you

Dear Tarikugeda,

sorry for the delay in answering this question. And...I'm afraid I'm going to answer your question with another question:

What do you want to know? What information do you want to find out from your survey? This will help determine what kind of sample to use and how many points you will need. There are tools to help you determine sample size and allocation...but it would be based on the kind of information you want.

Best, Erik
