Protected areas contain some of the most spectacular wildlife in the world and the protection of their habitats from extreme pressures are critical. Routine wildlife surveys help protected area managers understand whether strategies they have implemented are having an impact. Monitoring survey information and trends derived from this information informs monitoring and protection plans.
The Wildlife Management solution includes a collection of maps and apps used by protected area staff to capture wildlife observations and monitor the status of wildlife populations within and around protected areas. This collection of maps and apps provide a modern way for protected area staff to capture wildlife observations and monitor wildlife populations in real-time.
Species diversity varies between protected areas, so it is critical for protected area staff to be able to configure the animal list within the Wildlife Management solution. In the following sections, we will highlight how protected area staff can configure the Wildlife Management solution to match local animal species.
To update the animal choice list, complete the following steps:
Note: The default animal list configuration comes with SVG graphics for each animal. If additional animals are added, you will need to add a new graphic for each additional animal to the media folder of the survey and list the file name of the new image in the image column.
To update the animal attribute list in the WildlifeObservations feature layer, complete the following steps:
Note: The animal list in the WildlifeObservations feature layer must be identical (syntax and order) to the animal choice list you updated in the Wildlife Observation Reporter.
To update the Rapid Wildlife Reporter ArcGIS QuickCapture project, complete the following steps:
Note: After the updates are saved, field users will see an option to update the Rapid Wildlife Reporter project in the ArcGIS QuickCapture application. Selecting update will download the new project updates to their device.
