Erik P. Willems, Kevin Buchin, and Urska Demsar. 10491 Results of the break-out group: Movement Data of Vervet Monkeys. In Representation, Analysis and Visualization of Moving Objects. Dagstuhl Seminar Proceedings, Volume 10491, pp. 1-3, Schloss Dagstuhl – Leibniz-Zentrum für Informatik (2011)


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.
