- BatScope can analyze recordings of Batloggers and assign them to bat species.
species assignment can only be as good as the references available to
the WSL. Signals, that do not occur in these files, including noises,
will be assigned to the species most similar to these. Thus erroneous
species assignments will occur. We are working at WSL to increase the
reference set to improve BatScope.
- After an
automatic analysis and classification, a critical review of the results
will always be necessary. For that task, you have to be knowledgeable of
the diversity of echolocation in bats and be experienced in the
analysis of acoustic signals. Only then will it be possible to
critically judge the species assignments of BatScope.
