How many users can I include in my project?

Should I make my project public or private?

A public project means that anyone can view your project as a guest. Guests can listen to recordings, see the spectrograms and all metadata but cannot modify any part of the project. In a private project only you and users you authorize can access the project.

How can I see the name of the species in the visualizer?

To see the species in your project, you'll first need to add each species and call type to your project. Reference How to Add a New Species here.

Can I add a new species in the system if my species does not appear in the RFCx Arbimon species list?

RFCx Arbimon possesses a complete and detailed list of all mammals, birds and frogs of the world. If the species is unavailable, type unknown in the search box and select a Sp# and the sound type from the drop-down menu.  If you would like to see your species name in our platform, please contact us at support@rfcx.org.
