WildTrax offers seamless and flexible options for privacy and sharing, so that users can easily share their data with their teams, collaborators and the public, or keep it private. Anyone can explore the Data Discover portal for open data from projects in their area of interest. The Resources section includes protocols used by multiple organizations to guide your own research or monitoring.
WildTrax standardizes data processing and integrates automated database checks to ensure data standards are achieved. The inclusion of species verification allows you to validate tags.
WildTrax has a variety of integrated tools to speed up media processing, such as Microsoft’s Megadetector to classify images as vehicles, animals, or humans, and the ability to incorporate acoustic recognizers to identify specific vocalization patterns.
These and other tools increase efficiency, so you can spend more time on the species you’re interested in (e.g., by removing false fires).
WildTrax is a robust platform that supports open data initiatives, and encourages contributors to adopt open data principles. WildTrax aims to provide tools and a flexible system that can adapt to evolving data collection practices and meet the needs of various users, from field technicians to decision makers.
