Camera Trap Data Package (or Camtrap DP for short) is a community developed data exchange format for camera trap data. A Camtrap DP is a Frictionless Data Package (https://frictionlessdata.io/data-package/) that consists of 4 files: - datapackage.json: metadata regarding the data package and camera trap project. - deployments.csv: a table with camera trap deployments. - multimedia.csv: a table compiling multimedia files taken by the camera traps. - observations.csv: a table with observations based on the multimedia files. The Camtrap DP package is documented on a website (https://tdwg.github.io/camtrap-dp/). Camtrap DP is managed by the Machine Observations Interest Group of Biodiversity Information Standards (TDWG). It was originally developed by the Open Science Conservation Fund and the Research Institute for Nature and Forest (INBO). Camtrap DP is endorsed the camera trap data management systems Agouti, eMammal, TRAPPER, Wildlife Insights and already available as an export format in some of these.
