Paper on GPS and Wildlife Tracking

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on

An article about global positioning system and animal behavior co-authored by USGS scientist Mark Fuller was among the 10 articles most cited in 2010 from the Journal Philosophical Transactions B. The article “Global position system and associated technologies in animal behavior and ecological research” provides background information on a satellite-based, three-dimensional system developed by the U.S. Department of Defense. It also discusses the transformation of GPS into a wildlife-tracking system and reviews its integration with other systems to collect, store, and transfer data.
