Patrols are a temporal segmentation, a report documents a subject and reports during a certain period of time. This may include reports, notes, images.
Some examples of what a Patrols could be:
- Documenting animal behavior
- Documenting investigations
- Tracking game drives
- Planning and documenting work for operations team
- Canine training.
In Patrols you can also find Tracked Subjects whose locations will be used by this Patrol for monitoring and analysis. The type of subject tracked is usually a GPS enabled radio, a personal tracker, or a phone equipped with ER Track, which is carried by the team during the patrol.
Real-time updates from the Tracked Subject are necessary to track the device during the Patrols but are not required for patrol analysis. A subject that has tracked its locations on the device, and uploads them when back in range, is still used for Patrols analysis when configured as a patrol’s Tracked Subject.
You will be able to see the current Patrols in the Patrols List by clicking on the Side Bar Navigation.
