Ocelots are big felines in danger to be extinct but still found in some areas in Mexico, the spots in the body of ocelots make a pattern that is unique to each specimen and can be used for identification purposes. Ecologists are interested in non-intrusive census of these wild felines. In this paper, a method for automatic identification of specific individuals among ocelots is proposed. The proposed method maps each spot to the ellipse that best fits the spot, then keeps only the center of the…

Automated identification of animal species in camera trap images
TLDR
An automated species identification method for wildlife pictures captured by remote camera traps that uses improved sparse coding spatial pyramid matching (ScSPM), which extracts dense SIFT descriptor and cell-structured LBP as the local features and generates global feature via weighted sparse coding and max pooling using multi-scale pyramid kernel.
Fast Automatic Detection of Wildlife in Images from Trap Cameras
TLDR
This paper presents a method for detecting/cutting wild felines in pictures taken with trap-cameras installed in the forest and triggered by infrared sensors, which is fast, reliable and robust and can be used for other species with different pelage patterns.
First Records of Jaguar (Panthera onca) from the State of Michoacán, Mexico
Abstract In May 2010, we documented the presence of jaguars (Panthera onca) in the state of Michoacán, Mexico, by means of six photographs obtained with camera traps and a skull collected in the
A survey on fingerprint minutiae-based local matching for verification and identification: Taxonomy and experimental evaluation
TLDR
A review and categorize the vast number of fingerprint matching methods proposed in the specialized literature, focusing on local minutiae-based matching algorithms, which provide good performance with an excellent trade-off between efficacy and efficiency.
COMPUTER-AIDED PHOTOGRAPH MATCHING IN STUDIES USING INDIVIDUAL IDENTIFICATION: AN EXAMPLE FROM SERENGETI CHEETAHS
TLDR
3-D computer-aided matching does not require familiarity with distinctive features of the particular study animal, it is robust to matcher inexperience and can be modified for other species that have complex and variable pelage patterns.
A computer-assisted system for photographic mark-recapture analysis
TLDR
An open-source application for the storage, pattern extraction and pattern matching of digital images for the purposes of mark–recapture analysis is created and applied to a population of Masai giraffe in the Tarangire Ecosystem in northern Tanzania.
Long–term effects of flipper bands on penguins
TLDR
It is reported that banding results in later arrival at the colony for courtship in some years, lower breeding probability and lower chick production, and the survival rate of unbanded, electronically tagged king penguin chicks after 2–3 years is approximately twice as large as that reported in the literature for banded chicks.
Animal Recognition and Identification with Deep Convolutional Neural Networks for Automated Wildlife Monitoring
TLDR
A framework to build automated animal recognition in the wild, aiming at an automated wildlife monitoring system is proposed, using a single-labeled dataset from Wildlife Spotter project and the state-of-the-art deep convolutional neural network architectures to train a computational system capable of filtering animal images and identifying species automatically.
A critique of density estimation from camera-trap data†
TLDR
This work critically review 47 published studies and discusses the problems associated with contemporary population estimates of elusive species from camera-trap data, and recommends greater transparency in study design and quality of the data and the recently developed spatially explicit capture–recapture models as an alternative approach.
Speeded-Up Robust Features (SURF)
TLDR
A novel scale- and rotation-invariant detector and descriptor, coined SURF (Speeded-Up Robust Features), which approximates or even outperforms previously proposed schemes with respect to repeatability, distinctiveness, and robustness, yet can be computed and compared much faster.
