BLOGPOST: Bird tracking explorer released

Added on 2015-07-02 14:31:29 by Dekeyzer, Stefanie
LifeWatch INBO has developed an open source tool to let you explore the bird tracking data.
The LifeWatch bird tracking data are open: you can download these in bulk, via the CartoDB API or the GBIF API. The recently released bird tracking explorer, an open source tool, now allows you to quickly explore those data per individual and time period.

The bird tracking explorer currently contains data from 63 individuals (44 Lesser Black-backed Gulls, 16 Herring Gulls and 3 Western Marsh Harriers). Depending on the individual, tracks are available from May 2013 until August 2014. That includes the winter period during which certain birds migrate to Spain and Africa.

Read all about the used technology and different features of the tool in the blogpost below.

Happy exploring!

The bird tracking explorer is also available through here.

All birds can still be tracked in real-time here.
