Updates on Sea Turtle Species ID
Had considerable progress in this month on my ongoing research work, the sea turtle species identification project. Can detect two sea turtle species now among the seven species of sea turtles. Here are test results for two pictures of sea turtle carcasses found washed up on coast of Bangladesh. the one on top is Lepidochelys olivacea(LO) a.k.a Olive Ridley and the one bellow is Chelonia mydas(CM) a.k.a Green turtle. The white line around the subject and the name of species in black letters inside the black box at top-left corner are output produced by my program.
