WildTrax Service Models

You can use WildTrax independently, or contract the WildTrax team to deliver parts of your project. Begin by reviewing Self Service or Full Service models below. Looking for something in between? Contact us to set up a Custom Service option that best suits your needs.

Self Service

The self service option lets you maintain full responsibility for uploading and processing your sensor data. User guides and tutorials are available to walk you through this process.


Remote Upload

If you wish to store and manage data on the WildTrax platform, you have the option of remotely uploading your files. This occurs directly within your WildTrax account for camera data, or can be arranged via secure FTP for ARU data.


Self-service Processing

You can choose to process your own data within the WildTrax system using the camera or ARU processing platforms.


Data Download

You can easily download your data from your account to use for analyses and any other reporting needs.


Online Reporting

Full Service

Under the full service model, the WildTrax team manages, uploads, processes and reports on the project data you provide. Included services are listed below.


Data Drop-off

Provide the WildTrax administrators with a physical copy of your data on a USB or external hard drive, in person or by mail. Administrators will upload the data to WildTrax for you.


Advanced Interpretation Service

The WildTrax administrators will process your digital data—either transcription of audio recordings, or tagging of remote camera images.


Data Analysis Services

The WildTrax team will complete data analyses on your data in relation to your research questions. Additional publicly-available data may be incorporated into these analyses if desired.


Reporting Services

A final report based on your processed and analyzed data will be prepared for you.

Data Donation

If you don't wish to maintain ownership of your dataset(s), you can choose to donate it for incorporation into the ABMI's analyses and publicly-available data and data products. If you choose this model, you agree to transfer all aspects of data ownership and management to the ABMI. Donated data must meet high standards of usability and will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis before acceptance.

Crowd Sourcing

For camera images, you can release pre-selected images of your choice (e.g., only images containing animals, etc.) to the citizen science platform of WildTrax, where members of the public can be engaged to tag images.

* This platform is currently in development, and will be available Spring 2020.
