|Open-source options for whale flukes?|
I work with the Pacific Whale Foundation and we are looking to see if there's any way we can create a fluke-recognition system to support our scientific research and conservation efforts. We want to ideally create an online service whale watchers can use to upload their photographs of whale flukes. They would then be able to automatically see if there are any matches in our database, when and where that particular whale has been seen before, etc.
How feasible is this with existing open-source technology? The only currenly-existing piece of software (FlukeMatch) has not proven useful enough for us to use.
