Southern right whale picture by Brian Skerry The continued increase in the storage capacity and battery life of acoustic recorders is allowing industry and academia to collect passive acoustic monitoring (PAM) data over ever larger spatial and temporal scales. With this glut of new data comes a problem – what do we do with all […]
How to make an autonomous vertical array & time-sync SoundTraps
Guest blog post by bioacoustics PhD student Chloe Malinka, @c_malinka We at Coding for Conservation would like to let you know about a recent publication, authored by researchers from the Marine Bioacoustics lab at Aarhus University, the Sea Mammal Research Unit, the Bahamas Marine Mammal Research Organisation, and Ocean Instruments. (A very rough first draft of this paper […]
Finding Illegal Fish Bomb Blasts in Tanzania using Machine Learning and JavaFX
Introduction Most research into wild marine mammals occurs in wealthy countries. Amazingly, in 2018, we have still have very little idea what species are present, let alone the population size / health status / behaviour, etc. in many parts of the world. A solid first step to address this problem is to conduct a rapid assessment […]
JavaFX is dead. Long live JavaFX? (from a science perspective)
JavaFX is a library for producing awesome GUI’s. Here are some examples of it being used in science…. Recently JavaFX has been removed from the main Java release, here’s hoping it’s going to survive and thrive out there in the wild…
Using PAMGuard to track the movements of marine life around a tidal turbine
A review of our recent publication using coding in a conservation context.
Updated LTSA code
An updated MATLAB function and example on how to plot LTSA’s if using PAMGuard 2.0+
Hello 2018 and some JavaFX Colour Sliders
2018 and how to make a colour slider in JavaFX
C-PODs and PAMGuard
A discussion on the different methods C-PODs and PAMGuard use to analyse bioacoustic data and how we should compare them.
The New PAMGuard MATLAB Library
PAMGuard 2.0 has a brand new MATLAB libray. Here’s a quick tutorial on how to use it.
JavaFX and a new Display in PAMGuard
PAMGuard has a brand new display which shows all time based data. It’s written in a new Java GUI language, JavaFX, which has a much more modern look and some great new features. Check out what the new display can do.
