Animal movement

Uncovering the Mechanisms of Migratory Bird Navigation with Big Data Analytics.

Lead by Dr Urška Demšar one of the leaders in Science of Movement, I supported the developing of a novel data fusion method to join remote sensing data from the European Space Agency-ESA mission (Swarm) with animal movement trajectories. This exciting and multidisciplinary project attempts to meets Ecology with GISience methods to study how birds in particular long distance migrants use Earth’s magnetic field for navigation.
