Exploring camera-trap data

9 November 2022, 15:00 – 17:00 CET

For our next quarterly case study, we’ll explore current efforts that could improve the representation and coverage of data from camera traps in GBIF.

The programme will include 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 will conclude with an update on the status and next steps of the broader effort to diversify the data model.
