Contains collections of time lapse images from multiple ecosystem sites. Images organised by site, cameraid and year. Metadata of cameras included.
Phenological webcam / time lapse camera data. Collection originally created for the distribution of images of Monimet Life+ project (http://monimet.fmi.fi/index.php?style=warm&page=Cameras), which established a network of phenological cameras to Finland.
