Setting up a private project
The appointed Project Organiser(s) can invite named users (who have first registered for a BTO account and signed up to use the Pipeline), who can then upload recordings to that project.
The Project Organiser(s) has management access to the project to see who is uploading recordings, and to see the results, as recordings are processed. To obtain a quote for setting up a private project, please email acoustic.pipeline [at] bto.org.
When requesting a quote please:
- Provide an estimate of the likely GB (or number of nights of recording). This is used to assign an appropriate level of credit to the project, but additional credit can be purchased later.
- Let us know whether you want a copy of the recordings (wav files) to be stored in the cloud for later auditing, and for how long (e.g. 52 weeks).
- Let us know whether the recordings and results should be treated as confidential or can be shared.
Record the bats in your local area
No knowledge of bats is required, simply borrow a detector from your local pick up point and put it out overnight to record any passing bats.
Identifying small mammals from their high-pitched squeaks
Research published in British Wildlife by a team led by the BTO provides new possibilities for sound identification to be used as a non-invasive survey method.
