GeoLight – processing and analysing light-based geolocator data in R
Correspondence author. E-mail: email@example.com
- Determining global position by light measurements (‘geolocation’) has revolutionised the methods used to track migratory birds throughout their annual cycle.
- To date, there is no standard way of analysing geolocator data, making communication of analyses cumbersome and hampering the reproducibility of results.
- We have, therefore, developed the R package GeoLight, which provides basic functions for all steps of determining global positioning and a new approach in analysing movement pattern.
- Here, we briefly introduce and discuss the major functions of this package using example movement data of European hoopoe (Upupa epops).
