The Shepherd Project is a software framework to support capture-mark-recapture (CMR) studies. CMR is a core technique used in the analysis and management of wildlife populations. The Shepherd Project promotes non-invasive "virtual tagging" mark-recapture techniques (e.g., photo-identification via natural coat/skin coloration instead of physical tags attached to animals) to protect both animals and researchers in population studies. The aim of the Shepherd Project is to aid researchers in obtaining and managing CMR data to better understand and manage animal populations. The Shepherd Project is most successfully used as a collaborative, public-facing Web site, allowing members of the research community to collaborate and analyze data "behind the scenes" (with login access) and allowing members of the public to collect data as "citizen scientists" and submit it through submission forms.
Antony is an off-line and cross platform tool for organizing and sharing photos that makes it possible for a group of peers to keep a common photo, image, or picture collection current and synchronized. Users can tag images (year, event name, event place, or event type, photographer, people, comments). Images are stored in a local file system, and tags are stored in an SQLite database. To identify images, their MD5 sum is used, which makes it possible for users to merge collections. Images can be searched using tags, and images and metadata can be exported to a folder. A thumbnail representation and a zooming image viewer are provided.
phpdigikam is a Web interface for browsing your Digikam photos. It allows you to quickly share your Digikam photo collection with navigation by albums or tags.
