Jane Goodall\'s Gombe Chimpanzee Project

  • Jane Goodall\'s Gombe chimpanzee project has been continuing in Gombe National Park, Tanzania since 1960. (www.janegoodall.org)

Jane Goodall Institute Center for Primate Studies at the University of Minnesota (www.discoverchimpanzees.org)

research materials
Research Materials
  • Thousands of 35mm still chimpanzee photographs.
  • 600 hours of chimpanzee video recorded at Gombe since 1993.
  • Annotation information (metadata) about visual materials.

problem statement
Problem Statement

Given:

  • Video, photographs recorded at Gombe about chimpanzees.
  • Metadata of video and photographs.

Objective:

  • Digitize visual materials and create a database using metadata to index and access to these materials.
  • Make a demo of digital library which is accessible by the researchers and public through the web.

digital library
Digital Library
  • An organized collection of knowledge, stored in digital/electronic format, and accessible to users via digital/electronic interface technologies. [digitalib.geometaphors.com/west/glossary/ ]
  • In our case, digitized chimpanzee video and photographs will be accessible to users through the web.

project tasks
Project Tasks
  • Completed
    • Video, database, web server setup
    • Visual material digitization
    • Digital library prototype (for public and researchers)
    • Database design
  • In Progress
    • Data cleaning and loading data to database tables
    • Storing video clips and photographs in different resolutions.
    • User requirements analysis (query types, user interface)
    • Mapping chimp behavior ontology to the Cornell animal behavior ontology
future work
Future Work
  • Complete system implementation (digital library).
  • Use content-based image retrieval techniques to get information which is not documented in the metadata of visual materials.
  • Map chimp behavior ontology to the other animal behavior ontologies (i.e., Cornell animal behavior ontology).
  • Co-occurrence mining
  • NSF project: “Collaborative Research: SEI: Spatio-temporal Data Analysis for Behavioral Ecology” (ITR-0431141)
