This dataset contains the model weights, architecture, and class label dictionary for CameraTrapDetectoR pig-only model version 1. The model architecture is a FasterRCNN object detection model with a ResNet50 backbone. This model identifies and counts wild pigs in camera trap images. It also includes categories for non-pig detections (animal, human, or vehicle), and a background class. Additional information about the R package and the training data can be found in the package's Github repository:
