In this webinar we will take you on a whistle-stop tour through the process of getting a memory card out of a camera trap through to producing useful and simple data exploration in R. We will highlight some of the useful tips and tricks we have acquired from years of working with camera trap data. Participants will gain an understanding of what it takes to create a ‘good’ camera trap data set which is suitable for sharing with other researchers and collaborators. No experience in R is required to participate, but it will help!

This talk is co-hosted with the wildCAM network.
