Map and monitor with CamelScan

Stakeholders should be clear about what will be monitored during their program.

While the preceding steps cover what type of monitoring is to be done, there should also be discussion about exactly what information must be collected, and why. Some issues to consider before monitoring  begins include:

  • Who is the information for and how will they use it?
  • Who will gather the information?
  • Who will analyse the information?
  • What type of strategy will be put in place to ensure collected data  are promptly fed back (eg to landholders or agencies) in an appropriate and useful form?

CamelScan is a community website that allows you to record and map sightings of feral camels, damage, and control activities in your local area.

Use CamelScan data to identify areas where feral camels are a problem, and coordinate control with local land managers.

You can access CamelScan via the FeralScan website https://www.feralscan.org.au/camelscan/default.aspx

How to record:
  1. Register your Name, or simply record data using your email address.
  2. Record where you have seen feral camels, evidence, damage, and control actions.
  3. Submit your record, and view it on the website.
  4. View other sightings in your local area.
