Rép. : Re: Rép. : [K12OSN] Captu ring snapshots from camera



Hum, who will be the poor soul that is going to count the geese? 
Will he (she) be able to recognize the same goose from one snapshot to
the next? Dont forget, you cant count them twice!
Boy are you up the creek with this problem.
We have a similar problem with the extension of a parking space because
of bullfrogs.

OK I'll give you all little more background and it might explain my need

for quality :-)

You assumed that we're looking at people :-) we need to count GEESE yes 
that's right we need to know how many geese roughly are using our field 
before we are allowed to build a new college. These are  Brent geese 
that come over from Canada to feed etc & the local nature people have 
said we need to have numbers before we can go ahead, they've said that 
snapshots would be OK.

It's ridiculous that geese are stopping us build a new College but it's 
taken almost 3 years to get to this point !!!!
