Receiving near real-time data from Argos, Icarus, GSM, and Iridium

Wildlife Tracker is an ambitious project dedicated to the usage of geoinformatics in the field of Conservation Biogeography. The platform started to be developed in July 2021, in Helsinki. The visualizations are dedicated to wildlife tracking at the moment! What…

How to create a web map with the Urban Agglomerations Worldwide in Leaflet

The world is becoming urban. In 2018 the urban settlements worldwide hosted approximately 55.3% of the world’s population. The projections of the United Nations estimates by 2030 that 60% of the world’s population is going to be living in urban agglomerations. The key trends in urbanization unfold the concern of…

Get to know the stop detection algorithm and our geo-fence alarm system

Wildlife Tracker is gaining power! In the new release v0.2 the wildlife monitoring system is including additional algorithms for movements analysis and big spatial-data visualization. Wildlife Tracker is able to find stops of movement data which can be…

Interactive visualization of home-work commuting in Leaflet obtained from Call Detail Records (CDR)

Urban development has a strong tie with Human Mobility. Urban planners make decisions in the function of population dynamics. Let’s say, traffic congestion is a clear fact that specific roads are needed to reach important locations of…

Stop detection in Great Whale’s tracking records with movingpandas

In this demo, I will explain how to detect Foraging Spots in Great Whale’s migration routes in North Atlantic Ocean. In the paper by Silva et al (2013) the authors explained that Great Whales remained foraging at middle latitudes for prolonged periods[1]. Here, we are going to pre-set parameters that…

Great Whale’s tracking records to Linestring with Movingpandas

Great Whales are fascinating animals when talking about their migration behavior. Silva et al (2013) explain that whales devote a substantial amount of time and energy each year moving between widely separated geographic areas. As we can see in the maps of this story the Great Whales move from the…

Wildlife tracker for real-time tracking and animal behavior analytics

INTRODUCTION

Thanks to the advances in data streaming and tracking technologies the Wildlife Tracker is software capable of revealing animal behavior in real-time visibility. The projects for Nature Conservation have a wide range of research paths where this software can be implemented…

Flow-map in KeplerGL based on aggregated movements from OD-matrix of Bike movements in Helsinki

Helsinki is a city provided by an enormous network of cycling paths that make it efficient for alternative mobility (i.e. bike, scooter, walking). It is more comfortable to ride a bike to the destination in some situations instead of taking public transportation. Personally, it happened to me in the spring/summer/autumn…

How to create a map in Orthographic projection and a map-animation with penguin tracking data — Pyproj and KeplerGL

The behavioral studies of Adélie penguins are addressed to central place foraging theory which explains that breeding seabirds should energetically optimize prey acquisition and, therefore, foraging is expected to be located where prey is most available, within limits defined by the energetics of the species [1]. …

How to create accessibility maps with Travel Time Matrix 2018 in Helsinki Region

Helsinki is well known as a sustainable and smart city in Europe. The transportation in Helsinki Region is offered to give good accessibility in long and short distances by different transportation modes (car, bike, public transport). Let’s say trains make the far away neighborhoods “close” to the city center based…
