Abstract

Flukebook is a non-profit, open source cetacean data archiving and photo matching tool developed under the Wildbook Platform that uses computer vision and artificial intelligence to facilitate photo-identification of individual animals in the wild. In 2016 the IWC approved funding for the development of a regional data platform for the Arabian Sea Whale Network (ASWN), to be implemented in collaboration with Wild Me, the developers of Flukebook. This collaboration has resulted in expanded functionality of the Flukebook platform to allow storage and analysis of survey sightings data that does not include individual encounter or photo-identification data, as well as other functions that will be of use to the global cetacean research community.
