Filter project data
Use the tools in Step 2 to filter your project’s data before analysis. These tools can be useful if you’re interested in analyzing only a subset of the data. For example, you may want to analyze outcomes only for Mammals or only within one month of time.

View deployments by year
Wildlife Insights provides an easy way to view deployments across time. Click on the “View deployments by year” button at the top right of the screen to visualize all deployments within the selected project. The y axis will show the Location name and the x axis will show the year.
Each bar in the graph represents a deployment and will be colored by subproject. If no subprojects are assigned in your project, each deployment bar will be grey. Hover over a bar to view the deployment name and the deployment start date and end date.
This graph can be useful to run quality checks on your dataset and to ensure there are no images with a timestamp that lies outside of a deployment start or end date. If there is an image with a timestamp outside of the deployment, a red triangle will appear next to the deployment.
Hover over the triangle to view the filename, timestamp of the image, the identification (common name) and the deployment name. You can use this information to return to the project’s Catalogued page and edit the image timestamp.
Select a date range
By default, the date range selected includes the first date a camera was deployed and the last date a camera was deployed in your project. Select a custom date range by clicking within the “Start Date” and “End Date” fields at the top of the page. Here, you can select the start and end dates desired and click “Done” when your selection is complete.
Below each date, Wildlife Insights displays the number of camera deployments active on that day.
Add multiple date ranges
Using the “Add date range” button will allow you to add more than one date range, giving you more control over what data is included.
