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.
- Great interaction instructors-students. The instructors were always available for discussing whenever, in or off class, despite the clear exhaustion. It was a great team!
