Overview

Wildlife Photo Survey is a configuration of Photo Survey that can be used by fish and wildlife staff to publish photos collected from camera traps and conduct surveys that may identify animals in their natural habitat.

Wildlife Photo Survey leverages location-enabled photos produced by many commercially available camera traps used in the wild and simplifies data processing so photo collections can be gathered on a regular basis. It combines photos with a series of questions and enables fish and wildlife staff, or the general public, to review captured images and quickly gather information about the distribution and behavior of wild animals in their natural habitat.
