    Abstract

    We provide a brief update on the software developed for assessing nest camera images through the CEMP Special Fund project ‘Developing an image processing software tool for analysis of camera network monitoring data’. This CEMP Special Fund project was initiated in 2015/16 to refine existing software and develop post-processing code for data download according to specifications developed in consultation with the CCAMLR nest camera community. Here we describe development of the software, the approaches for nest camera image processing available within the software, data downloading considerations, and encourage feedback from nest camera users to assist in finalising the software through this project for completion towards the end of 2018.
