Reviewing Identifications

Learn how to use filters, bursts, and bulk editing features available in Wildlife Insights to speed up data processing.

Using filters

Navigate to the Identify tab within a project. All images reviewed by artificial intelligence will have a gold marker in the top right hand corner of the image.

You can filter through images using the filters at the top: by deployment, by species, by status (i.e., blank, not blank, unknown, tagged), or by “highlighted” images. You can also group images taken within a short time of another image by using “Bursts”. You can enter a “Burst” of up to 120 seconds.

Approving and editing identifications

To accept or edit an identification, click on an image in the Identify or Catalogue tab. A screen will open displaying a larger preview of the image. To the right of the image, you’ll see the Author, Identification Date, Species, and Confidence.

To accept the identification, click on the Accept Suggestion button. To mark as blank, click on the Mark as blank button.

To edit the identification, click on the Edit identification button. This will open a new screen that allows you to search for the correct species name. To add multiple animals, click on the Add animal button. To add more details about the identification (i.e., age, sex, markings), click on the circular button with a downward facing arrow, located below a species name. Click on the Save changes button to save your edits.

View Identification History 

To view a history of all the identifications saved for an image, open the image in the Catalogued tab and click on the Edit Identification button. A new screen will open and you’ll see a History button at the bottom of the screen. Click on the History button to view all saved identifications. Newer identifications are listed at the bottom of the list.

Adjust the brightness, contrast or saturation of an image

If your images are too dark, too light, or anything in between, you can use the “Edit Photo” tools to get a clearer picture of what’s in an image. To use these tools, open up any image. On the top right hand side, you’ll see the “Edit Photo” tab. Click on the text to open up the editing tools. You can manually adjust the brightness, contrast or saturation of an image or choose one of the presets available.

How to Favorite, or “Highlight” an image

When you’re viewing an image and it’s identification box, you’ll see a Star icon above the word “Highlight”. Click on the icon or text to favorite the image for easy access later. Note that all Highlighted images will be available publicly on the Discover page.

Favorite or assign an identification to a group of images

You do not need to open the large view of an image to assign an identification. You can assign an identification to an image or several images at once in the thumbnail view. To do so, move your mouse to the top left hand corner of the image(s) you’d like to identify. You should see a white outline of a circle appear. Click on the circle to select the image(s). The circle will fill with white when an image is selected. To assign an identification, click on the white Identify button that appears at the bottom of the screen. A pop up screen will appear where you can search for species or mark the image(s) as blank. To favorite the selected images, click on the star icon at the bottom of the screen.

Using Bursts

When you’re identifying or reviewing images, you can view the images in Bursts. This option groups images that were taken within a short time of another image. You can enter a Burst of up to 120 seconds. The number of images within a Burst will be displayed in a red circle in the top right hand corner of an image.

Click on a Burst group to see the first image. A lightbox will open and display the first image. You can toggle through the Burst set by clicking on the arrows at the bottom of the screen. The right hand side of the lightbox will show a summary of all of the identifications (e.g., 3 capybaras, 1 blank). If you select an identification or edit the identification, the selection/edit will be applied to all images in the burst.

If you Highlight an image, the highlight will apply to only the image being viewed.
