Title: Data Analysis of GPS-Tagged Seabirds
Our project uses GPS and satellite data of two threatened species, Common and Arctic Tern, to create visual heatmaps of bird locations and travel. The data for our project was provided by Linda Welch, a biologist with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and Maine Coastal Islands National Refuge. Our results can be used by Linda and her affiliating organizations for educational uses and future studies.
