The second week of AniMove is full of individual project work with many specific approaches, challenges and obstacles. Many of the learned methods from the last week are now applied to own animal movement data sets and approaches discussed with the AniMove lecturers.
Already many interesting topics about animal movement, environmental monitoring or general scientific topics were discussed in the last days and it will continue in the next days. The 2017 AniMove group has great data and ideas, we are looking forward to their final project presentations on Friday!
Many topics were and will be covered: from first steps in animal movement analysis, using Movebank.org or remote sensing and GIS functionality, computing the NDVI, creating a classification or analysing spatial variation using R up to more complex topics such as CTMM or resource selection. Every participant is working on one specific research questions related to her or his tracking data set and is discussing options and approaches with the AniMove lecturers.
