Once the metadata sheet has been filled in (see the model structure video) How do you fill in the hunting data? The first section contains the identification columns these first two columns do not need to be filled in but the following variable data level is
mandatory, so you have to select what kind of data you have whether your data
came from; monitoring, an event, or an observation The category monitoring
refers for example; to whether you are going to enter the number of animals
hunted during a hunting season the event; may refer to the number of animals
hunted on a single day and the observations record; the data of a
specific animal at what level are you going to enter the data. wherever possible try to enter the data as accurately as possible the person who records this information should be indicated here, by inserting the name of the data provider. The original database code ….who is a data provider ………… Jim Ly Here the locality For this type of location please note that this data is mandatory Here you are required to indicate if they are; coordinates, polygons ,grids or if they are administrative units. In this case we are going to use coordinates The following variable is compulsory, but conditional. This means that since we have selected the correct coordinates option in the previous variable Then it is mandatory to fill it in in this case our data will be … estimated It this means that we do not have the precise data regarding where the animal was hunted and we only know that it was hunted, approximately, in this
region eg within hunting ground with a given error Here we will indicate that this area is between 100 meters and 1 kilometer, This is, therefore the precision to which these coordinates correspond we do not, in principle, have to enter the shapefile ID, because although the
instructions indicate that it is mandatory it is only mandatory when the location type is a polygon it can therefore be left empty the same thing occurs with the wkt polygon or with the grid as we
do not refer to a specific grid We do have to indicate, and in this case it is mandatory, the reference system we are using to enter the geographic standard Here we can enter wgs84 which is the most appropriate format for the project For the variable country we enter …Italy Once we have selected Italy we can
select the region or province in which our record is located what type of area is it? This field is also mandatory and we have different options: the administrative units, a hunting reserve a a management unit; such as a natural park or an area of a research study In this case we select hunting ground . if for some reason there is a problem with the drop-down menus we can always go to the data value sheet and select it directly from there if you have any doubts about
term concepts you have the different options where you can find for each a drop-down menu with our definitions. The size of the study area is not mandatory, but it’s better if you can include it In this case it’s 500 ha Here we are allowed to include other information that we may or may not have such as whether there is supplementary feeding whether there are pigs in that region whether those pigs are grazing free There is no quota limitation, if it is limited you cannot hunt as many wild boars as you want but only a restricted number per day, hunter or season. The timescale of the data we are going to incorporate corresponds to the day So we indicate
the date when this occurred On the first of the second month 2014 If it were a time interval we would have to fill in these fields We also fill in the data time which is the date that we have registered The 9th of the 3rd 2014 In the measurement section we indicate the number of animals hunted 14 were hunted 3 females, 4 males, 6 juveniles, 1 unidentified we should indicate if the
females were inspected to see whether or not they were pregnan and indicate how this was done whether they were selected using a random method, or whether all
the hunts were analyzed 4… 2… 9… 20… if there is no information on the
reproductive status, it doesn’t matter because this is not mandatory. For the hunting method this information is mandatory and in this case we indicate that a drive hunt with dogs was carried out Another option is also available if
you don’t know which mode is used Here, you will find information about how many hunters there were 30 hunters number of people beating, number of dogs: 12 hunting area, allowing us to know that there were 180 ha Number of days hunted, in this case it was only one So we almost have this rope
filled in If the data we have, are similar for the other records we could copy all this data into the following rows and only modify those that we know
will vary, for example the coordinates These data are the same, so we could drag them. As the geographical data are different for each case we should change
them and if it is the same box and and contains the same information we can copy it. the data could be same for year and month, but we’d have to change the day These data are the only ones we would have to fill in or paste from an external database because the rest of the data will more or less be similar, we only incorporate the data that can be organized with an external database, which allows us to copy and paste them quickly
