Animal Movement short course at Macroeco 2019
March 13 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Animal Movement Analysis course organized by Dr. Anne Scharf and Jakob Schwalb-Willmann:
In this workshop we will visualize, explore and perform basic analysis of animal movement data. We will give an insight into Movebank (database of animal tracking data) and how to get these tracking data into R. Additionally to visualizing, manipulating and analyzing the movement data in R, we will relate these to remote sensing data. Finally we will animate the movement of animals over time on a static or dynamic background of remote sensing data.
We will provide course materials in form of R scripts. Participants should bring a laptop with R and RStudio installed. Please also install the packages raster, move and moveVis and their dependencies.
