Recording of data should be done as soon as possible after data are collected to minimize the opportunities to introduce error ([[Columbia Center for New Media Teaching and Learning, n.d.>>||anchor="Columbia"]]). Each unique measurement should be recorded only once to minimize data collection effort and to avoid possible transcription errors ([[Borer et al, 2009>>||anchor="Borer"]]).

Measurement uncertainty should be recorded if known ([[DataONE, 2011a>>||anchor="DataONEa"]]). If actual measurements can not be obtained and an estimated value is recorded, a note identifying the estimate and estimation technique should also be recorded ([[DataONE, 2011b>>||anchor="DataONEb"]]).
