Two intense weeks of AniMove at BIK-F in Frankfurt successfully finished. The highly motivated and skilled attendees from various countries and studying movement patterns of various animals learned a wide range of animal movement analytics as well as spatial data handling and remote sensing. All approaches were explained in detail and all following analysis were done using actual data in an open source environment (R). We are very thankful to Thomas Müller and Chloe Bracis who organised the AniMove this time and we are looking forward to an exiting 2017 with one or more AniMoves! More details about upcoming AniMoves and respective application dates will be posted on our webpage soon. Moreover, we will also update our image galleries for the two AniMoves in 2017 over the christmas break. We hope all attendees apply the learned techniques successfully in their ongoing research and do not hesitate to ask about approaches or problems, especially with R code on your listserv: https://mailman.uni-konstanz.de/mailman/listinfo/animove
Very intense days at the Max-Planck Institute for Ornithology at the Lake Konstanz, Germany, with AniMove courses and evening keynotes. The AniMove participants learn a huge diversity of animal movement techniques, spatial data analysis and remote sensing, all in open-source software R and QGIS. Great evening keynotes by the director Martin Wikelski and Iain Couzin present the vast variety of animal movement science. Further keynotes by James Cheshire (www.spatial.ly) show the power of visualization and further evening talks bymovement scientists such as Justin Calabrese provide in-depth information of animal movement potential and challenges.
AniMove will take place end of September in Germany, Lake Konstanz and the application deadline is March 1st. Looking forward to your submissions and to meet 20 of you next September. More details can be found here.
