Visual Analysis of Social Behavior of Wild Animals

Introduction

Understanding the social interaction of wild animals in the context of their ecology is imperative to the conservation of endangered species. Our ability to observe individuals in the wild has increased exponentially with the availability of GPS enabled sensor networks. Yet, our ability to qualitatively analyze these data is still lagging. We are developing new interactive visualization methods that will allow scientists to better analyze the behavior of wild animals in order to understand how these populations interact in the wild, make use of habitat, minimize predation risks, and assess the effect of human activity on their survivability.
