How to Use Animal Observer

Animal Observer is specifically developed to help behavioral ecologists collect focal-follow and scan data on social animals. It can also be used to record ad libitum social behavior data and any individual-specific data such as health data.

Animal Observer already includes a default data collection protocol and a few gorilla group composition data which you can use to practice and assess if the App meets your needs. Test the following features and then replace the default protocol with your own observation protocol and study animals.
