The following screenshots demonstrate Wildbook functionality in a sample workflow.

1. Install Wildbook and customize its look

2. Submit data to Wildbook in a Web-based form, or you can use the Java API to create custom data importers.

3. Review a submitted encounter for data accuracy in the Unapproved state.

Review submitted GPS coordinates in the integrated Google Map.

Note the automated comments section that tracks changes to data, providing an audit trail for mark-recapture data.

4. View the consolidated history for a marked individual

5. Tab through images and view EXIF data

6. Add standardized, searchable keywords to individual images

7. Search by robust criteria through encounters

8. Search by robust criteria through marked individuals

9. View search results as a table

11. View search results on a map

12. View search results in a calendar

13. View search result analytics

14. Export Encounter Search results to Google Earth as KML

15. Export Encounter Search results to ArcGIS as a shapefile

16. Export Encounter Search results to Excel

This data format can also be used for integration with OBIS-Seamap.

17. Directly integrate a wiki for custom online Help and project documentation.

Check out and for examples. We recommend DokuWiki, but many other wiki packages can also be used.

18. Integrate pattern recognition algorithms to speed identification

This example presents the dual pattern recognition algorithms that are included by default in Wildbook. Additional algorithms can be integrated using the Wildbook Java API.

19. Export mark-recapture history files for use with Program MARK and other modeling applications

The Wildbook Java API can be used to create custom export formats for your study.

20. Raise awareness through individual animal adoptions
