Improving the precision and accuracy of animal population estimates with aerial image object detection

1. Animal population sizes are often estimated using aerial sample counts by human observers, both for wildlife and livestock. The associated methods of counting remained more or less the same since the 1970s, but suffer from low precision and low accuracy of population estimates. 2. Aerial counts using cost‐efficient Unmanned Aerial Vehicles or microlight aircraft with cameras and an automated animal detection algorithm can potentially improve this precision and accuracy. Therefore, we evaluated the performance of the multi‐class convolutional neural
