I’m wondering if anyone knows if there exists any definitions for the database fields? I’m more of a data person than a conservation person, so I’m wanting to understand the technical side of the database so my bulk uploads can be most accurate.
For instance - the ‘date’ for a record - should this be the date the trap was checked? or the date an animal was caught/detected?
Similarly - does the trap ‘status’ pertain to how you found the trap when you visited, or how you left it?
These are probably easy questions to answer on their own, but I have more and a formal definition for all terms on the database would solve most (if not all) of my queries. I’m a little surprised that it’s not in the FAQ…
If there isn’t currently one in existence - would somebody like to help me create one? We could create a shared document for the community that’s added-to by everyone (like a Wiki) to keep it updated.
