tripEstimation

The R package tripEstimation provides data handling and estimation functions for animal movement estimation using data from archival or satellite tags, including code for light-level geolocation. Helper functions are included for making image summaries, binned by time interval, from Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) simulations of point data. It was developed by Michael D. Sumner and Simon Wotherspoon at the University of Tasmania.

Compatibility with Movebank: 

The package does not interact directly with Movebank. However, Movebank can be used to archive raw light-level data and derived locations as described here, and movement data can be downloaded from Movebank in csv format for use with R.

GeoLight

The R package GeoLight provides basic functions for determining location based on geolocator data obtained from light-level loggers (light intensity measurements over time). It was developed by Simeon Lisovski, Simon Wotherspoon, Michael Sumner, Silke Bauer, Tamara Emmenegger and Steffen Hahn at the Swiss Ornithological Institute. Functions allow users to

Compatibility with Movebank:
