Data sets can be created both within and outside Simply Tagging. The data is stored in a simple CSV or comma delimited file
Some example data sets are supplied with the program. These will be installed with the program, in the folder My Documents/Simply Tagging Data.
DemoFull.csv is an example of a data set where individual capture histories have been entered.
Jolly_summary.csv is mark-recapture summary data organised for the Jolly-Seber method and
Closed_summary.csv holds the summary data needed for the closed methods. See a simple example of data entry to show an example of the entry of closed summary data.
To create a new data set within Simply Tagging select File: New from the drop-down menus.
You will be presented with a window that offers 3 types of data for entry, Full individual tagging, Jolly-Seber summary and Closed summary.
