What Wildbook should this feature be in? ACW
What would you like to see?
The ability to specify when adding a new annotation that I want it to have a new encounter record.
How would this functionality help you?
I’m trying to clean up some lion annotations in a bulk import and I’m finding that the system allows me to add more than 1 head part/annotation per encounter. This is a problem because the 2 heads belong to different lions:
Ex: Wildbook for Carnivores | Login
I believe that this is intentional functionality for Wildbooks where multiple photos are added to a single encounter however that creates an issue when there are also multiple animals in a single image - there’s no way for me to force the system to create a new encounter for the separate individual.
The lion detector misses lion heads fairly frequently, particularly in photos with more than 1 individual in them, which is VERY common, particularly in tourist images. If I’m not able to get the system to create a new encounter for every extra head annotation that I need to create, then that restricts me to only being able to ID 1 animal per photo, which severely limits our lion ID functionality.
So some way to either have the system not allow multiple lion head parts per encounter or, preferably, to allow me, the user, to tell the system: when I add this new head part, put it in a new encounter record, not the old one, is what I’m looking for.
