8.1 - Data Downloads

Data Downloads is the section of the WildTrax website where you can export and download your processed and tagged data from projects. The format is a zip file contains multiple csvs (depending how many projects you're downloading) with columns customized to each sensor type. 

Your accessibility to the projects within Data Downloads is dependent on your organization and project membership and the status of the project (see more in Privacy). As an administrator, you can download data at any time to perform preliminary analyses.

To download data from a project, login to WildTrax, go to the button and click . There are then three steps to follow to download the data: choose the sensor, choose the projects and finally choose the download format.

Note: Only a single csv format is currently available in WildTrax. More reporting formats will be available in the future.
