Pecora: Presentation of Free Range Sheep Information
MetadataShow full item record
The main goal of this research is to help sheep farmers find and track their sheep, especially at the end of the grazing season, when the sheep must return to the farms. This research aims at delivering the presentation part of a IT-system named Pecora. Pecora will provide the sheep information by taking thermal images from a drone. The presentation part of Pecora is the interface between the farmers and the results provided by the drone. The presentation part is named Pecora/P. Pecora/P will deliver and display all the information the farmers need in order for them to find their sheep in the wild. This report is about the development and testing of Pecora/P. Pecora/P will be delivered as a webpage containing a map and an information panel. The information panel will display all the information available about each of the findings of sheep. The map will be used for displaying the sheep and other related animals found during the analysis of the pictures in an visual presentation. Sheep and other different animals will be placed on the map with specific icons, based on the species of the herd. The webpage will also provide to the users all the information about findings from previous days. This gives the farmers the ability to see the route the sheep have taken over the past week. Pecora/P are deliberately made modifiable as Pecora are not fully implemented, and Pecora/P are open to new approaches that can be used to find and track sheep during the grazing period.
