    Some images are too bright, making recognition almost impossible. Can this be fixed?

    Hi Parekhnish and welcome to help with this great project!

    We have noticed that some images are very bright and overexposured. There is though unfortunately no way for us to improve the images in any way. Some images may be quite hard to interpret but not impossible and we just need to try to do our best in identifying also these images. And we all here help each other in every way we can.

    Extended Survey season is a special edition of Snapshot Serengeti and connected to a different research, more info in our Blog. Cameras were set to wider area in Serengeti Ecosystem, some places are fairly remote. Cameras were also set at higher level from the ground than usual, to get wider/certain view of the herbivore and vegetation. Thus some cameras were exposured longer periods/directly to the sun and even some sensors went broken. Researchers could get to some cameras only every 3-4 months to check them, because of their remote placement.

    Here some links to discussions where scientist in this research has commented these things



    All images are still important and most of the images are really great so hopefully you will have fun and enjoy doing this valuable work with us 😃
