WildLog v1.6

A new version of WildLog is available. It contains some bug fixes and a few new features.

You can go here (use the link at the top of the blog for the latest version) to download the application (and source code).


  1. Since I'm a Mac user, I've sent it to my daughters who are more computer savvy than I am. But it sounds like a wonderful tool, and I'll get familiar with it, so I can use in my camera trapping workshops.

  2. WildLog is written in Java (1.6) and should in theory be able to run on a Mac, but I guess I might need to iron out a few small issues before it will work 100%. I uploaded a ZIP version of the program to bypass the MSI installer issues, but I'll be surprised if it works 100%... The Mac will need Java 1.6 to be installed on it for the application to work. If I can get my paws on a Mac I’ll try and test it out and provide a Mac version as well in the future.

    Currently WildLog is very much developed for my own personal use and has some South Africa specific features, but I might be able to create an American version if need be (for your workshop). Let me know if you are interested.


  3. Hello
    I've have installed Wildlog, looks like a really useful tool, I say "looks" because I'm not sure how to use it. Do you have a tutorial or something similar.
    Thanks for sharing the software!


  4. Hi Juani
    I'm glad you're interested in WildLog. The application has grown a lot since v1.6 (I'm currently using/working on v3.0 myself). I'll try to release the latest version and do a blog post on it during the next month. Unfortuanately you won't be able to easily upgrade to the new version because of major changes in the background. (Usually I try to keep upgrades in mind.)
    I think v1.6 came with a short PDF user guide. Try looking in the Start Menu -> WildLog folder.
