Choose Language Preference
Wild.ID currently supports two languages: English and Chinese (Spanish will also be added soon). To
switch the language to Chinese, click the Chinese Version button in the upper right corner. To go back to
English, click the 英文版 button in the upper right corner. Although the rest of the instructions use the
English version of Wild.ID, the menu items should be the same across versions.
Start a New Project
Wild.ID allows the user to keep track of multiple camera trap projects in one location. Each project is
made of four components: Camera Trap Arrays, Events, Cameras, and People. When a new a project is
created, the information for these components must also be entered before importing any data into
Wild.ID.
To add a new camera trap project, make sure you are on the project management page (refer to the
image above for an example of an empty project management page). If you are not on the project
management page, open the Project menu at the top and click New Project. Any projects that were
created in the past are also listed in this menu.
If this is the first project the user has created, Wild.ID will automatically open to the project
management page. Follow these instructions to create a new project:
1) Click on the
button at the bottom of the page.
2) Fill in the requested information, and then click the Create button. Not all of the information in
the pop-up is required, but please fill out as much information as possible.
8
Note: The project name can only have a maximum of 10 characters; the project abbreviation must be
three characters long.
Once the project has been created, it will be added to the explorer window on the left side of the
screen. If you do not see the four project components seen in the below image, you may need to click
the “+” next to the project name to expand its contents.
As you can see in the above image, a camera trap array with one camera trap is automatically added to
new projects. Click the “+” next to Camera Trap Arrays and Array 1 to expand those directories and see
all camera traps currently entered in the project.
Wild.ID automatically names each array and camera trap using the following naming convention:
CT-[Project Abbreviation]-[Array Number]-[Camera Trap Number]
Now that the project has been created, it is time to edit its components.
Adding Camera Traps and Arrays
Adding Arrays
Sometimes a project will have multiple groups of camera traps that are deployed during a single
sampling period/event. These groups of camera traps are called arrays in Wild.ID and are very easy to
create. If your project only has one array of camera traps, please review the “Adding Camera Traps”
section of this document.
To add additional arrays to your project, click on the Camera Trap Arrays directory heading in the
explorer window on the left.
Click on the
button at the bottom of the Camera Traps Array screen. Every time the New
Array button is clicked, Wild.ID will add a new array to the project based on the naming convention
mentioned above. No other information is required; however, you may choose to enter the latitude and
longitude coordinates for the array centroids on this page.
To add the latitude and longitude coordinates to an array, double-click the appropriate cell, enter the
coordinates, and then press the Enter key.
An example project with three arrays is shown below.
9
As you can see in the above image, each new array that is created automatically includes one camera
trap.
Adding Camera Traps by Batch Upload
Wild.ID supports a batch upload function that allows users to upload a list of camera traps using the predefined template below.
Table 1. Template for Batch Upload Excel file. Pay attention to the strict formatting requirements for the array names. All
other cells in the template are user-defined and do not have any formatting requirements with the exception of the camera
trap names, which are limited to 25 characters, and latitude and longitude, which will only accept numeric values. Template
files must be saved in .csv or .xls format.
Camera Trap Name
Camera1
Camera2
Camera3
Latitude
101
103
105
Longitude
102
104
106
Array
CT-NEW-1
CT-NEW-1
CT-NEW-2
The Camera Trap Name column contains a list of unique camera trap names, Latitude and Longitude are
filled with the spatial data for the camera traps (this can come from a shapefile or GPS unit), and the
Array column is used to assign camera traps to their arrays. Any Wild.ID versions prior to v0.7.5 must
follow a strict formatting procedure (i.e., CT-[Three Letter Project Abbreviation]-Array Number) for the
Array column.
Array names should be identical to the names of the arrays that
were created and are present in Wild.ID. Using the project in the
previous section as an example, the user would enter “CT-NEW-1” in
the Array column for all cameras in array 1 and “CT-NEW-2” for
Note: Future versions of Wild.ID
will include a simplified version
of the batch upload feature. The
new template will eliminate the
strict formatting requirements
for the array names in the
template file.
10
cameras in array 2. If the project abbreviation was XYZ, the user would enter “CT-XYZ-1” to assign
cameras to array 1.
Follow these steps to upload your list of camera trap names and spatial information:
1)
2)
3)

5)
Click on the Camera Trap Arrays sub-heading.
Click on the array for which you would like to upload data. a. For example, “CT-NEW-1”
Click on the Set Camera Traps by Excel button at the bottom of the window.
Select the file that contains the camera trap information from the pop-up window.
Check the names of the camera traps that were uploaded and delete any camera traps that will
not be used, such as the camera trap names that were automatically created with a new array.
a. Click the Trashcan icon next to a camera trap name to delete it.
Note: The batch upload file must contain the three headers: Camera Trap Name, Latitude, and
Longitude (the Array header is optional). Please see the table in this section for an example of how to
format the batch upload file.
Once the camera trap names are imported into Wild.ID, they can be edited following the steps on page
14 in the section entitled “Edit Camera Trap Name.”
Adding Camera Traps Manually
Click on any array under the Camera Trap Arrays sub-heading (Array: CT-NEW-1 in the below image) to
edit the camera trap information for that array. Similar to adding projects and arrays, new camera traps
can be added to each array by clicking the New Trap button on the bottom of the screen. In the below
image, I have added four camera traps to array 1 for a total of five camera traps in this array.
No other information is required; however, you may choose to enter the latitude and longitude
coordinates for the camera trap locations on this page. To add the latitude and longitude for camera
11
traps, double-click the appropriate cell, enter the coordinates, and then press the Enter key on your
keyboard.
Note: When added manually, camera trap names are automatically generated from the project
abbreviation, array, and camera trap number. These names can be edited by double-clicking on the
name cell and entering a new name. Press the Enter key on your keyboard to save the new name. This
will update the name of the camera throughout the software.
Adding Events to a Project
Adding events to a project are useful to researchers because it allows them to easily tag their data by
camera trapping events (e.g., year, season, and sampling period). When data is imported from a
memory card later on, the events listed here will appear in a drop-down menu for selection. Follow
these steps to add an event:
Click on the Events directory heading in the explorer window on the left side of the screen. This page
will be blank for new projects.
Click on the
button at the bottom of the Events screen. Every time the New Event button is
clicked, Wild.ID will prompt the user for a name the event. The image below shows several examples for
formatting the name of an event. Event names are currently limited to a maximum of 50 characters.
Adding Camera Trap Metadata
The Cameras sub-heading helps researchers keep track of their camera trap equipment information in
case the camera traps are stolen or malfunction.
Adding Camera Trap Metadata by Batch Upload
Wild.ID supports a batch upload function that allows users to upload a list of camera metadata that
includes the manufacturer, model, and serial number for each camera trap used in the project. Follow
these steps to upload your list of camera trap metadata:
12
1) Click on the Cameras sub-heading.
2) Click on the Set Camera by Excel button at the bottom of the window.
3) Select the file that contains the camera trap information from the pop-up window.
Note: The batch upload file must contain the three headers: Manufacturer, Model, and Serial Number
and be saved in a .csv or .xls file format. Please see the table below for an example of how to format the
batch upload file.
Table 2. Template for camera information batch upload file. No special formatting is required for any of the cells in this file;
however, the batch upload file must be saved in .csv or .xls format.

drop-down menus in the pop-up window.
3) Click Create to save the camera information.
If a mistake is made, double-click in the cell where you would like to make a change and edit the
information. Press the Enter key on your keyboard to save the changes.
Adding People to a Project
Wild.ID also helps researchers keep track of the people involved on a project. To add people to your
project, click on the People directory heading in the left side explorer window.
Click on the
button and then fill in the fields on the pop-up menu (i.e., Name, E-mail,
Role). An example of the People screen can be found below.

Possible Error Messages:
If you receive this message, it means that the camera trap ID entered into the camera trap unit is
different from the camera trap ID entered into Wild.ID. Click Yes to save the camera trap data in the
Wild.ID naming convention.
18
Another possible error message can occur if the camera trap serial number entered into Wild.ID differs
from the serial number programmed into the camera trap. Both of these values will be saved. The user
will also be told how many images are saved.
Repeat the importation process for the rest of the camera traps in your project. After at least one
camera trap is imported, the user can start annotating the images.
Annotating Images
Simple Annotation
After images from camera traps are added, the user can annotate images by pressing the “+” next to
Array 1 and then the “+” next to the camera trap name. The list of images will appear.
Click on one of the images in the camera trap folder and that image will appear in the center window.
The screenshot below shows the basic setup for the annotation window after clicking on an image to
annotate.
19
Use the drop-down menus in the annotation window on the right side of the screen to annotate the
images. When choosing a photo type, please consider these guidelines:






Animal – This photo type should be assigned when an animal can be identified by the user. If
the genus and species of the animal in the image is known, fill in the fields in the annotation
window on the right.
Setup/Pickup – This photo type is used for setting up and picking up the equipment. There are
often a series of photos of the deployment crew at the beginning and end of a camera trap
deployment; these should be marked as Setup/Pickup.
Start or End – Wild.ID should automatically determine the correct start and end images for each
memory card, but it does make mistakes on. If Wild.ID makes a mistake you can manually
change the automatically generated Start and End images.
Unidentifiable - Sometimes you will be unable to identify a species in the image. You may be
unable to identify a species because the image is too dark or because the animal is moving too
quickly and is blurred beyond recognition. When this occurs, choose the “Unidentifiable” option
Unknown - This photo type may sound similar to unidentifiable, but it is used in different
scenarios. An image should be annotated as Unknown when the genus and species of the
observed animal is unknown. It is for images where an animal is clearly distinguishable, but may
require an expert to correctly identify it.
Blank – In this scenario, there are no animals in the image and the camera trap misfired for
some reason.
Finish filling in the remaining text boxes, including the number of species observed in the image, the
number of individuals of each species, the degree of certainty about the annotation, name of the person
who identified the animal, and any additional notes that might be relevant (for “Animal” photo types).
Different photo types will require varying amounts of information to be entered. Click the Update
button to save the annotation. The color for the name of the image should change from black to green
in the left-hand explorer window.
20
Note: Genus and species fields only accept a scientific name and will automatically fill in the name as
you type. If Wild.ID does not recognize the name that is entered, please look for other possible scientific
names. Wild.ID uses the IUCN Redlist as our taxonomic authority and is available online at
www.iucnredlist.org.
Apply Annotation to a Group
You may want to apply a simple annotation to multiple images within the same photo group (all images
within one minute of the current image). To do this, make sure to click the box next to the words “Apply
to the Group.” When this box is checked and the Update button is pressed, all images within the photo
group will be updated with the current annotation. Please see the section called “Group Mode” for
more advanced grouping options and to view the images that are included in a selected photo group.
Multiple Species
If there is more than one species in the image, click the
that species.
button and enter information for
When you are finished annotating the image, click the
button to save the annotation. If you
would like to annotate all the images in the image group (all images within one minute of the current
image), then check the box for Apply to the Group. The other way to annotate images by group is to
select the Group mode in Wild.ID (see “Group Mode” section below for more information).
After clicking the Update button, the color of the image text in the explorer window on the left should
change to green.
Note: Genus and species fields only accept a scientific name and will automatically fill in the name as
you type. If Wild.ID does not recognize the name that is entered, please look for other possible scientific
21
names. Wild.ID uses the IUCN Redlist as our taxonomic authority and is available online at
www.iucnredlist.org.
Group Mode
Wild.ID is programmed so that you can view images individually (“Single” mode) or in groups (“Group”
mode). The default mode for Wild.ID is single mode.

button or double-click on
“Group” mode is useful if many of the images in a group are the same. If this is the case, you can check
the box next to where it says Apply to the Group in the annotation window and Wild.ID will annotate all
of the images in the group the same way. Group mode is shown below.
Wild.ID features a masking function, which can be used in “Group” mode by right-clicking on an image.
All images default to unmasked, but masking can be helpful when there are a lot of images in a group,
but some images are different from the rest. You can either select which photos to mask individually,
reverse all masks, or mask annotated photos only. Only images that are unmasked will be annotated
when the user checks the Apply to the Group box. In other words, masking an image will cause it to be
ignored by the system when the user applies an annotation to the group.
22
Report Damaged Equipment
Every once in a while a camera trap will become damaged or go missing out in the field. This is due to a
range of reasons—a tree could fall on it, an animal can cause damage, or a poacher might remove it. If
this happens, the event can be reported in Wild.ID by clicking New Data → Report Damage from the
Data Processing Menu (see screenshot below).
The user will have to fill out a pop-up form describing which camera trap was damaged/missing, when
the it was discovered, and what was wrong with the camera trap.
Fill out the required and choose a damage type based on the descriptions below:




Trap Missing: Camera trap was missing when the field crew went to retrieve it.
Case Damaged: There was some damage to the outer case, but the camera and memory card
seem to be functioning properly.
Camera Damaged: There is a problem with the camera. It either misfires continuously, doesn’t
fire when there is movement in front of it, or doesn’t save images to the memory card.
Card Damaged: The memory card used in the camera trap doesn’t work or is unreadable by the
computer. Damage to the memory card can be determined by inserting a new memory card in
the camera trap and seeing if images are written to it that are readable by a computer.
Click Submit when all of the fields have been filled. See an example of a completed damage report
below.
23
Delete Camera Traps
At one point or another you may need to delete a camera trap from Wild.ID. To do this, select the
camera trap you want to delete in the explorer window on the left, open the Data Processing menu, and
then click Delete. Wild.ID will ask you to confirm the deletion. Click Yes to delete the camera trap.
24
Exporting Data
Export to CSV
Once all of the images have been annotated correctly, it is time to export the data. This can be
accomplished by selecting either an array or sampling event in the explorer window on the left.
OR
Click Export Data → Export to CSV File from the Menu Bar at the top of the screen and then choose a
location to save the file. Look for your file in that location after the export is completed.
Export to TPK File
Once all of the images have been annotated correctly, it is time to export the data. This can be
accomplished by selecting either an array or sampling event in the explorer window on the left.
25
OR
Click Export Data → Export to TPK File from the Menu Bar at the top of the screen and then choose a
location to save the file. Look for your file in that location after the export is completed.

Glossary
Camera Trap – A camera trap is a single sampling unit used to collect images of wildlife.
Array – An array is a group of camera traps deployed at the same time.
Project – Projects contain all information about camera trap efforts in a particular country. Each project
may have multiple arrays of camera traps and sampling periods/events. The user might also choose to
have multiple projects for one country if the objectives of the projects are different from one another.
Events – Events are specific time periods when camera trap arrays are deployed. For example, if one
array is deployed each year, each year would be an event (e.g., 2012, 2013, 2014). Alternatively,
multiple events in a year could be annotated Spring ’13, Fall ’13, etc.
People – These are all of the people involved in the camera trap project, including principal investigator,
