Camera Trap Image analyzer

How do I get started with trap tagger in analyzing camera trap data. Thanks in advance

Hi Ann, 

So 'getting started' is a bit vague - it would be helpful to have a bit more info so you can get a better answer. What specifically are you trying to do? Are you just looking for general advice about how to get up and running with trap tagger (i.e. is it worth using?) or were there specific questions you're having as you're trying to get started? 


Hello Stephanie,

Specifically I want to use trap tagger for analyzing camera trap images .I would be glad if I would get someone who will take me thought the software bit by bit.


Hi Ann

I'm afraid I don't know anything about trap tagger, but if you are looking to analyse camera trap data, and you are in Sub-Saharan Africa, you could also give WildID a try.

WildID does automatic species recognition in camera trap images, and then allows you to further annotate and tag your images with notes and other features. It works for 70 Southern African species, and the AI model was trained using images from Kenya and Tanzania, among other African countries.

You can register for a free trial of WildID at https://www.wildid.app - it would just take you a couple of minutes to register and get your first few images uploaded and detected, so you could see how it might work for you. 

There is a comprehensive User Guide at https://userguide.wildid.app

I would also be very happy to give you a demo or a training session, and take you through the software. You can contact me on [email protected] 

Hope this is helpful, and good luck with your project.

Kind regards, Kate
