Automated Photo-ID Technology Helps Researchers with Grey Seals

Automated Photo-ID Technology Helps Researchers with Grey Seals

Using photo ID technology is an important way for researchers to track animals over long stretches of time. It is a strategy used with the unique pattern on humpback whale flukes , with the particular dorsal fin notches and shapes of individual great white sharks , and researchers have even come up with a barcode-like system for cataloging and reading the individual stripe patterns on individual zebras. As technology advances, so too do the opportunities researchers have to use images for identifying individuals within a species, and to have the images in an automated system to make recognition fast and easy. However, the "mug shot" strategy being used for grey seals underscores some problems that can arise -- and how technology can overcome these problems. University of St Andrews reports on the automated system that scientists at the University of St Andrews, Conservatio...
