The monotony of analyzing aerial imagery can be quite… monotonous… until one finds a small herd of water buffalo taking a bath in the Nile. Take a look in the images below. At some point soon we plan to use our algorithms to auto-identify a variety of animals as part of a large-scale and evidence-based census in the national parks of Uganda. Stay tuned for more on that.
We’ve recently built mobile phone apps so conservationists can track the movement of carnivores from 20 ft away. So tracking animals from 10,000ft is a nice change of perspective.
