Tracking Results

Interpreting the turtles' movements

The tracking data contain a lot of information. To get to all that information, we list the data in different formats:

Using only high quality ARGOS satellite locations, we plot the turtles' routes on maps.

Yumi's route based on good quality ARGOS satellite positions

We tabulate the raw satellite data so one can get an idea about the accuracy of the individual locations.

And we animate their movements so one can play with them in an interactive video.

Animation showing Yumi's movements

Playing the interactive animation gives you a feeling for the timing of the turtle's movements. Watch the data window as you see the turtle icon moving across each animation's map.
