SharkBook - Left & Right Flanks

Hi, in the new that has taken over from SpotaShark (Australia) we have lost the ability to track whether the photo is of the left flank or the right flank. As you may remember, the greynurse shark has very different features on their left and right flank and so we manage the data separately. We would like to understand how this information is now stored, since it does not ask the user to state whether its left or right flank anymore - how will this now be managed?

Hi @Sarah_Aus_SpotaShark

You’ll need to tag each photo Left or Right with a Keyword now. Eventually, we need machine learning to replace this function as it does a great job detecting lefts versus rights and supports simultaneous upload of both.


Hi, @Sarah_Aus_SpotaShark !
Here’s the keywords section of the docs to reference.
I imagine that we may want to add keywords to the existing encounters for consistency?
