Select the project (and species, if there is more than one species for the project) you'd like to review images for, and click the review images button to get started. You will have to create an account first if you do not have one. Please take a look at the interface instructions and training images for each species first. Determining if a bird is on a nest can be particularly difficult! With your help, we'll be able to test different computer vision algorithms to automate the detection of animals within the images.

Hudson Bay Project

Common Eider Somateria mollissima

We are using trail cameras with time-lapse photography coupled with motion sensor triggers to document nesting events of Common Eiders and Snow Geese at La Peruse Bay within Wapusk National Park, near Churchill, Manitoba. Your help with facilitate us knowing what predators are in the nesting colonies, when predators are arriving at nests, and how the birds are behaving throughout incubation (time when birds tend their eggs).

Active projects include:

La Peruse Bay, Manitoba
2013-2016

UAS Estimating Snow Geese

Important: These are presented as image sets, ranging from 100 - almost 1000 images per set. You can see how many images are left in the set in the information section at the top of the page. When reviewingthis project, you will automatically be presented the next image in the set you are currently working on after submission. Progress is saved, so you can come back at a later date to finish the set.

We are using an unmanned aerial survey (UAS) unit to take aerial imagery in the Hudson Bay, near Churchill, Manitoba.
