Research & results



Camera traps are increasingly used in fauna research. However, a single camera trap can take thousands of photos a year, making a proper data management system indispensable - especially in larger, long-term projects.

In Agouti, projects are created in which photos and/or films are uploaded. Subsequently, researchers or volunteers involved in the project can view the photos and indicate which species can be seen on the photos (annotation). Depending on the research question, additional information (such as behaviour, sex, age,...) can be added. The resulting data and accompanying pictures can also be exported from the system and archived.

Agouti was developed by Wageningen University, after which INBO, as a partner, became jointly responsible for adding extra functionalities such as the export of data.
