As data becomes increasingly abundant in the field or Movement Ecology, we face the need for new tools and methods for managing, processing and analyzing it. This era of “big data” presents new challenges on the one hand, but is believed to have the capacity to lead us to unparalleled insight and discovery. My work focuses on adapting and creating tools from the field of machine learning in computer science, for the analysis of bio-logger movement data.
