World Animal Net

World Animal Net Detail
The biological and statistical communities already support a number of excellent tools, such as Program MARK,GenAlEx, and SOCPROG for use in analyzing wildlife data. The Shepherd Project is a complementary software application that:
provides a scalable and collaborative platform for intelligent wildlife data storage and management, including advanced, consolidated searching
provides an easy-to-use software suite of functionality that can be extended to meet the needs of wildlife projects, especially where individual identification is used
provides an API to support the easy export of data to cross-disciplinary analysis applications (e.g., GenePop ) and other software (e.g., Google Earth)
provides a platform that supports the exposure of data in biodiversity databases (e.g., GBIF and OBIS)
provides a platform for animal biometrics that supports easy data access and facilitates matching application deployment for multiple species
The Shepherd Project started as a collaborative software platform for globally-coordinated whale shark (Rhincodon typus ) research as deployed in the ECOCEAN Whale Shark Photo-identification Library. After many requests to use our software outside of whale shark research, we are now working to make it an open source, community-maintained standard for mark-recapture studies.
