NOTE: Auto ID is intended for use in analyzing recordings of single bats in free flight, low clutter environments. On average, more than half of such recordings will result in classifications with 80% accuracy. Recordings of roost emergence, multiple bats, captive bats, bats in high-clutter environments or bat social calls are not suitable for Auto ID and results may not be accurate.
