GIS Modelling

GIS Modelling of satellite telemetry data

Despite the wealth of data available from satellite telemetry (ST) studies, species distribution modelling has so far been based on museum data, point counts or observation data.

With our approach to model species distribution with ST data we show how high temporal resolution of ST data can be optimally exploited for species distribution modelling.

We modelled the wintering distribution of Eleonora's Falcon in Madagascar from 2003 - 2006. The publication will soon be available as a pdf.

We aim at modelling the wintering distribution of Sooty Falcon based on satellite telemetry data which we will receive from the ongoing study (Oman, 2010).
