Take the survey: your needs and priorities for (open-source) acoustic monitoring technology

Hi everyone,
Experienced or a newbie with acoustic monitoring? Doesn’t matter, we want to hear from you! We want to know your wish list for acoustic monitoring technology. Power, wireless communications, on-device species ID…you name it!

We are conducting an online survey (about 10 mins) to understand the future needs of acoustic monitoring technology applied to the study of biodiversity (terrestrial and aquatic). By participating in this survey, you will be contributing to the development of a roadmap for acoustic monitoring technology, a publicly available document to support strategic planning of future open-source acoustic devices.

** Take the survey here! **

Please forward this survey to anyone who may be interested. We aim to get as many respondents as possible from all over the planet to better reflect the technology needs of the bio/eco-acoustics community.

The survey will close on Friday 26th of March, and we’ll present the summarised results here in this Wildlabs thread.

Already participated in the recent Open Acoustic Devices hydrophone survey? No problem! This is a separate survey with different aims, and we would value your thoughts.

Your contribution and time are very much appreciated!
