Creating and managing live data feeds

Movebank provides near-live data feeds for a growing number of tag types, including

  • Argos PTT-GPS units from Microwave and GeoTrak
  • GSM-GPS units from CTT, Druid Technology, Ecotone, e-obs, Fleetronic, Followit Wildlife, madebytheo, Microwave, MoveTech, and Ornitela
  • Iridium GPS units from Followit Wildlife

Once you have created a study in Movebank, you can set up a subscription to automatically collect your data and add it to your study in Movebank one or more times per day. Once you have set up a subscription, sign up to receive e-mail notifications and run data filters to flag outliers.

If you are interested in having a subscription to another type of satellite or GSM data feed, please contact us at
