Exploring camera-trap data

Webinar 3: Exploring camera-trap data


We explored the current efforts that could improve the representation and coverage of data from camera traps in GBIF.

The programme included an introduction to and discussions about Camtrap DP, a new community-developed exchange format, and a preview of a publishing guide for camera-trap data now in preparation. The session concluded with an update on the status and next steps of the broader effort to diversify the data model.
