New training tools for Movebank, EnvDATA and R

At the beginning of May we held a two-day NSF-sponsored workshop in Scotland, where over 30 movement ecologists networked and learned about movement modeling, analysis and mapping in R. We focused on how to do this using animal tracking data in Movebank and environmental covariates from EnvDATA, a tool on Movebank to access global remote sensing and weather model data products, along with the amt, move and moveVis R packages.

Want to try creating your own RFS and SSF models or tracking animations in R? The scripts and files from this workshop, along with materials from our 2018 workshop in North Carolina, are posted at https://movebankworkshopraleighnc.netlify.com.
