    Abstract

    We provide an outline of data that can be generated from nest camera images and describe how they relate to the parameters outlined in the CEMP Standard Methods. We discuss where the two are similar, provide comment on nest camera data utility for CEMP, and outline gaps in our assessment of their use for this purpose. We provide suggestions for how CEMP data submission forms could be varied to accommodate nest camera image data for consideration by the EMM Working Group.
