One of the biggest challenges for people studying and managing wildlife data with camera traps is processing, analyzing and sharing the influx of images collected. Fortunately, Wildlife Insights helps to accelerate data processing and makes collaboration easier than ever before.
The Wildlife Insights team has been working hard to build a tool that provides you with the power of artificial intelligence (AI) for species identifications, standardized data collection, secure cloud storage, and simple ways to share your data with your team and the public.
That’s why we’re excited to announce the public release of the Wildlife Insights platform! Here’s what you need to know:
Accounts to upload and manage camera trap data
Every week, we’ll approve accounts for those who signed up for our Trusted Tester Program but have not yet received account approval. All approved accounts will have full access to the system including:
- AI trained to identify more than 700 species
- Easy image uploads
- Filters to focus your efforts
- Bulk editing tools and shortcut keys
- Roles offer flexibility to control how team members can access your project
- Statistics updated on demand
- Download your own data at any time
- Privacy options including embargoes on data
- Automated sensitive data protections
If you’ve already signed up for the Trusted Tester Program, keep an eye out for an email from us with more information on how to get started.
If you didn’t sign up for the Trusted Tester Program, don’t worry! Although we’ve closed the Trusted Tester Program, you can still sign up to have your account approved. After you’ve signed up, you can expect to hear from us soon.
