NASA Movebank Project

A new NASA-funded project, led by Dr. Gil Bohrer at Ohio State University, will develop new tools on Movebank for linking animal tracks to remote-sensing environmental data. Further, it will develop methods for hypothesis testing using these types of annotated datasets. The project is a collaboration between wildlife biologists, remote sensing experts, and Movebank.

Project partners include Ohio State University, the US Fish and Wildlife Service, the US National Park Service, the US Geological Survey, the Smithsonian National Migratory Bird Center, the Acopian Center for Conservation, Hawk Mountain Sanctuary, Los Alamos National Laboratory, Lafayette College, Mount Allison University, and the Max Planck Institute for Ornithology.

Project funded by the NASA Earth Science Division, Ecological Forecasting Program
Project number NNX11AP61G


Don't forget: Abstracts for the May symposium are due on Feb 15!

Hi everyone,

Just a quick reminder to register and submit your abstracts for the last NASA project meeting, the Symposium on Animal Movement and the Environment.

Spring Symposium, May 5-7, Raleigh

Hi Everyone,

Just updating this forum to show the Spring Symposium plans. Details up at our website:

Please register soon, space is limited to 150 people (for real) and registration is only $100 for non-students.




Final NASA Movebank Meeting - Spring 2014

Just a quick note to let everyone know the date of our final Movebank meeting is being moved from August 2013 to Spring 2014 to better synchronize with the end of the grant period.  This will allow our final Movebank tool training to take advantage of more development time.  The plan is still to have the meeting at Front Royal, VA, and to have it followed by a movement modeling workshop.


I'll update this with a more specific date when it has been settled.
