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
- One thing I learned is that many of the problems we as students and researchers are facing are not simple problems that can be answered through literature search and traditional courses, but rather need to be thought about and discussed within groups of talented like minded scientist who we can work with to push the envelope.
