Course Announcement

Analysis of Telemetry Data in the GIS Environment

Held at the US Fish and Wildlife Service's National Conservation Training

Course Title:   FIS2216 Analysis of Telemetry Data
Course Date:   September 23-27, 2002
Course Location:   National Conservation Training Center, Shepherdstown WV

The course will be a quantitative and computer-intensive review of
techniques involved in conducting analysis of animal movement data.  Major
topics will include telemetry study design, sampling and statistical
considerations, importing data into a Geographic Information System,
determination of site fidelity and the presence of a home range, multiple
methods of home range calculation, examining habitat preference, dynamic
and static interaction between individuals or individuals and events, and
creating Monte Carlo and bootstrap tests for examining spatial patterns of

Instructor: Philip N. Hooge, Ph.D., a research population ecologist from
the USGS Alaska Science Center, is the author of the ArcView extension
Animal Movement.  Dr. Hooge has conducted movement studies in aquatic and
terrestrial systems on fish, mammals, birds and reptiles.

Who Should Attend:  This course is designed for biologists with basic
statistical skills who intend to begin a study of animal movements, and for
those projects that have already acquired such data and wish to assess its
usefulness with a broad range of current analysis methods.  Locational data
can be acquired through observation, VHF telemetry, sonic tags, ARGOS tags,
or any other mechanism.  The methods discussed are not species- or system
specific and can be applied across taxa and in most habitats.  In addition,
many of the methods discussed can be applied to a wide range of spatial
point phenomena other than animal locations.  Participants need to have a
basic understanding of ArcView GIS such as can be acquired in a week-long
course in addition to regular use of the software.  Participants are
encouraged to bring their own datasets and questions so that real-world
problems can be addressed, depending on available class time.

Objectives: Learn how to design a statistically valid tracking study that
will maximize analysis potential.  Be able to select the appropriate
analysis tools and techniques to achieve study goals.  Understand the
strengths and weaknesses of various statistical models and tracking
analysis software for estimating parameters such as home range, site
fidelity, habitat preference and others.
