July 2, 2018, 17:00 - 18:30 UTC (9:00 am PDT/12:00 pm EDT/5:00 pm BST)
This webinar will discuss guidelines for using underwater video effectively and present a new software tool developed specifically for underwater video analysis. The software, called EyeSea, is being developed to help manage the video analysis workflow and to automate the detection of fish. Camera and recording equipment will be discussed and guidelines will be presented for recording video that is optimized for automated processing.
