INP file format

What Wildbook are you working in? ACW

A user is trialing the export functionalities in ACW. He wanted to export my encounters as a mark-recapture file. The resulting file has an .inp extension.

He needs to know how to open the INP file format.

Since I don’t know, I told him I’d ask the experts :innocent:


Hi @ACWadmin1

The .inp format is just a text file. Program Mark, RMark, and other mark-recapture-related applications will look for that file extension by default, but there’s no magic to it. The format of each row however is proscribed and a standard for many mark-recapture analytics packages, though it is not a managed or hard standard.


An additional good resource:

Thanks @jason! Much appreciated.
