In a very short period of time the SM2BAT from Wildlife Acoustics has become
recognised as an industry-standard remote bat detector and is widely
used by consultants, universities and researchers.
Superior field equipment that records more calls brings with it the challenge of larger volumes of data to analyse.
Baker Consultants is now able to offer a full data processing service to assist in the analysis of bat survey field recordings. Using our library of bat call ‘recognisers’ our experienced bat ecologists can provide a cost-effective, independent analysis of SM2 recordings.
