We've been working with biologists who collect high resolution data from tagged animals. These tiny smart sensor packages can include magnetometers, accelerometers, temperature, pressure, light, GPS and gyroscopes. Biologists want to interpret the data to understand the behaviour and habits of freely-roaming wild animals in their natural habitats. Some examples include Wild Condors in South America, Diving Cormorants and Sea Turtles. We've produced several tools for processing such time-series data and this talk will present some of the main approaches to searching for behaviour patterns, annotating data and linking different views of data to enable effective interaction.
