Tracking animals with electronic telemetry devices to gain insight into where they go, how they use their environment and their interactions with other animals has become a major research focus in ecology. However, a lack of statistically sound and intuitive analysis tools has meant that the true potential of animal movement data is often unexplored. Using innovative computational methods, we will create a new animal movement analysis toolbox to allow practitioners to link animal tracks with environmental and human activity datasets in a simple, robust manner. This toolbox will be made broadly available to researchers, providing a new framework to address pressing questions relating to the spatial ecology and conservation of animals in a human-dominated, variable and changing environment.
