Pattern Matching runs optimally on both Firefox and Chrome.
1. Click Visualizer on the main menu and select a thumbnail.
2. Search for the call/song of the focal species in the selected recording. Search for a call/song that has a strong signal (high signal-to-noise ratio) and does not overlap with other sounds. Alternatively, you can upload recordings from other sources (e.g., Xeno-Canto) to create a template.
3. In the Visualizer menu, select Templates. Drag a box around the call/song. Assign a name to the template and select the species/call type. The species/call type should have previously been added to the project. If it wasn't, you will need to Add a Species first, refresh this page, and then resume this process.
You can see the templates in Data by selecting Templates menu
