Title:

An assessment of Movebank as a repository for tracking data

Publication Year:
2016
Abstract:

One of the discussion topics during the Symposium on Animal Movements and Satellite Tracking in Namibia was how to implement data sharing. Many projects are collecting tracking data and using it for one particular purpose only. If these datasets were available to other researchers, they could be of great value in investigating other issues, aspects of behaviour, interactions between predators and prey and so on. Movebank (www.movebank.org) is a potential option for achieving these aims. Alice Jarvis - JARO Consultancy, Jörg Melzheimer - Leibniz-Institute for Zoology & Wildlife Research, Germany.
