Movement Segmentation

This group is for users interested in the statistical classification of parts of animal movement paths into different biologically interesting segments. We can share literature, methods, and scripts, and experiences.

Trajectory segmentation algorithm from medical community.

Helmuth et al 2007

"The algorithm relies on the reduction of the information available by identification of specific features on the virus trajectories. It overcomes many of the limitations of averaging moving-window methods and manual thresholding (Huet et al., 2006), and it enables the detection of short pattern segments and the extraction of physical parameters that describe each pattern."

behavioural change point analysis (BCPA)

A novel method for identifying behavioural changes in animal movement data, could be useful for migration/resident catagorization. some starter r-code included

Some thoughts on the segmentation null model presented at Hawk Mountain
