Argos is a satellite-based system for collecting and transmitting data from transmitters (PTTs) placed on monitoring stations and animals for environmental protection and research or to protect human life. Over 8,000 animals are tracked using Argos. Movebank collaborates with Argos to offer free data management and analysis tools specifically for Argos users, including live feeds of Argos data into Movebank, data filters, and automated import of Argos DIAG and DS data files.
