10491 Results of the break-out group: Movement Data of Vervet Monkeys

10491.SWM.ExtAbstract.2990.pdf (0.2 MB)


Discussions in this group focused on a particular problem that arises in animal movement ecology: how to link data describing movement (i.e. sequential GPS- coordinates collected on wild and free-ranging animals) with geographical and environmental context (i.e. properties of the internal and external environment within which the animals move). Our case study comprised a spatio-temporal data set on the movement of a group of vervet monkeys (Cercopithecus aethiops) over a twelve months observation period. We focused on two topics: context-aware estimation of home range area and multivariate visualisation of context data.
