Digital images will be used to document your species observations. These images will be stored in the database along with the text and location data to allow an expert to validate your data submission.

Before you leave

Check all of your photographic equipment

Make sure your camera has fresh batteries and you have fully charged spare batteries

Plenty of available memory

Check the settings, making sure its time/date, auto/manual, flash, aperture and shutter speed settings are correct.

When you are in the field

You will need to take one or more images to go with each species observation.

It is essential that you can associate the images you take with the species observation.

Note: The data collection sheet has fields to record the camera's automatically assigned image names for the close up images.

Be sure to record the image filenames on the collection data sheet while you are in the field.
