…watch this space later today.
Doing this for moose and caribou in Newfoudland, Canada. Would gratly appreciate a copy of the study design.
Hi, I love this project already. However, I find that on some pics, the animal is so close to the camera that only an ear, a leg, a rump or a belly is seen. Or it’s too dark, backlit, or far away to be clear. Based on the filter options you have, there is no way to identify many of these partial or difficult to see animals. Perhaps a button that we can use to flag the pic as “something there but I can’t tell what it is” or “too close to identify” or some such term. Now, all I can do is label such images as “nothing there” and move on. This feels wrong! I want to let you know I found something in the image, I just can’t tell you what it is!
It is wrong to identify an image with “nothing there”, when you can identify a brown rump or stomach. You simply guess, what it may be. Each image is presented to more persons. If the image gets different identifications, then is it presented for even more persons. It could be interesting to hear about this algorithm and the statistics behind.
Have to completely agree with Linda. Having a ‘no way i can meaningfully comment on this’ as a selection option is very much needed. You and the team can then look at them later and might have a better, professional, eye for determining what it is. And you’ll know local context so you might outright know what its likely to be. Otherwise, LOVE this. Excellent community engagement tool as well as helping you with the research!
Ditto all the above!
Same here – it seems a bit of a waste to have an animal in the picture that cannot be identified (at least by us tyros), yet could be by an expert.
It would also be helpful to have a color picture gallery of all the various tails.
Lastly, there are 33 varieties of mongoose (says Wikipedia), yet you show only one picture. There was one that I thought was a mongoos, but it didn’t seem too much like the picture you show. Opted for bat-eared fox – I’m not too sure which it was.
