It's Our Nature to Know Webinar Series: Episode 7-WildTrax Public Data Discover
DATE:November 23, 2021
TIME:12:00 - 13:00 MDT
A discussion of ABMI's WildTrax.
In the seventh episode of our webinar series, Alex MacPhail takes us on a journey across Alberta and beyond, to places where environmental sensor monitoring is currently underway using autonomous recording units (or ARUs) and remote camera traps. The ABMI has developed a world-class monitoring program that brings data into WildTrax: a web-enabled platform that manages, stores, processes and shares acoustic and image data in a modern and standardized way. Data Discover is the newest tool in WildTrax and an entry point to the world of big data.
Data Discover is a mapping tool that allows users to see public data depicting where units have been deployed, and what data exists. Users can filter by sensor type, project, and species of interest to attain publicly available datasets of interest, while data owners can compare their private and/or public datasets with publicly available datasets. Join us to learn how you can make the most out of this interactive tool!
Join the next episodes of the series to learn about human footprint mapping, aquatic invertebrates, and beyond!
More from the It's Our Nature to Know Webinar Series
The ABMI is pleased to present the “It’s Our Nature to Know” webinar series. From taxonomic discoveries and geospatial research to tools and platforms that bring the data to life—join us monthly to learn more about the many facets of the ABMI. Each month a different ABMI staff member (from across our delivery partners at the Universtiy of Alberta, the Royal Alberta Museum, and Innotech Alberta) will explain how and why we monitor the different aspects of Alberta landscape and biodiversity (across multiple species groups) that we do, and how the data we collect helps to inform land-use decision-making.
January 19 at 12pm MST Aquatic Invertebrates of Alberta (rescheduled)
January 26 at 12 pm MST The Human Footprint Inventory
Stay tuned for 2022 webinar dates!
