Sex information

Use the Movebank Sex attribute to define the sex of the animals based on a column in your reference data file. Select the column from your file that contains sex information and clarify which values identify females and males (e.g., "female" and "male" or "F" and "M").

When you are finished, hit Save. The Sex column will be added to the table under How Movebank will save the data showing the sex (Movebank uses "f" for female and "m" for male). Compare these values to those in your original file to confirm the attribute was mapped correctly. If you need to edit the mapping, select the Sex column header to re-open the import options.
