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.
