This dataset describes trailcam images generated from four Raspberry Pi-based trailcam prototypes and associated commercial trailcams as described in the associated MS (Klemens, Tripepi, and McFoy 2021). The data was generated by reviewing all motion detection events generated by the cameras and attributing them to either flying squirrels (Glaucomys sp.), other mammals, insects, or 'other', which includes capture events that cannot be attributed to an organism. The data records the total number of capture events recorded between placement of bait at the camera trap and sunrise, and then attributes each events to one of the four categories.
For some but not all site by camera combinations commercial camera traps were used to observe the Pi cams. The insect category is excluded as trail cams did not create events due to insect movement. The number of capture events in each of the other categories is presented. Percentages presented for the trailcam data represent the percent of capture events recorded by the Pi camera that were also captured by the trailcam.
Location data was collected using a Garmin GPSMAP64ST and the default WGS 84 map datum and WGS 84 map spheroid.
Data.csv contains the records for each camera trap for each night of the experiment.
Locations.csv contains the lat/long data for each camera trap X site combination
