GBIF guide to managing and publishing camera trap data opens for community review

Just a heads up that GBIF has released a new technical document for community peer review. The guide, Best Practices for Managing and Publishing Camera Trap Data, is open for community input and feedback until Tuesday, 31 October 2023. More details here.

Intended to provide up-to-date guidelines focused on the management and publication of data from camera trap devices, the guide arrives just on the heels of a v3.0 candidate release of GBIF's Integrated Publishing Toolkit software with built-in support for the Camtrap DP exchange format. 

We welcome your suggestions, comments and feedback—find the details on different ways of doing that here.
