Learn how to analyze animal movement data.
Combine animal movement information and remotely sensed environmental data
Two weeks science school with courses and working on own projects
Only open-source software will be used and all materials shared with the participants
Apply different analysis
understand movement patterns and driving factors
What We Offer.
AniMove is a ground-breaking capacity-building contribution [… ] great opportunities for students to learn about the cutting edge of movement ecology and the important insights which it opens for conservationTom Brooks
We offer two weeks of intensive course and project work to learn how to analyze animal movement data and combine it with remote sensing environmental data.
AniMove is a collective of international researchers with extensive experience in the topics of animal movement analysis, remote sensing and/or conservation. It is a two-week intensive training course for studying animal movement in conjunction with environmental parameters derived from remote sensing for conservation application. AniMove is a non-profit training initiative run by volunteers of various organisations such as MPI, JMU, SCBI or BIK-F.

The recurse R package by Chloe Bracis, one of our core members, got published in Ecography. From the abstract: "Animals regularly return to locations such as foraging patches, nests, dens, watering holes, or movement corridors, and these revisited locations are often...
PhD position animal movement and remote sensing – exploring innovative in-situ data This research project focuses on the analysis of animal movement tracks for deriving new, innovative remote sensing products. Novel methods or a new combination of established methods...
The application deadline for our next science school AniMove 2018 at the Max-Planck-Institute in Möggingen, close to Lake Constance, Germany, is approaching. Please apply before end of March if you like to learn about animal movement analysis, its combination with...
New paper about the technical and theoretical differences between animal movement and remote sensing data and practical solutions to improve their combined use.
An update for rsMove is now available on CRAN. rsMove was designed to support movement ecologists in the selection and handling of remote sensing data. This package helps select study sites, guides the choice of satellite data by quantifying the influence of its...
We happy to announce the release of the recurse package on CRAN. The recurse package analyzes animal trajectory data for returns to a previously visited area and calculates associated metrics like residence time, time between visits, and entrance and exit times.
