Biosphere- Movebank

Movebank is an online database that tracks the movement of all kinds of animals around the world. The website includes maps of the world, and the option to choose which animals to study.  Researchers can manage, share, protect, and analyze data. Users can choose whether or not to make their data available to the public. Movebank encourages collaborations between researchers, conservation groups, and government to re-use animal tracking data for a variety of purposes. This kind of platform is similar to the iNaturalist app that we utilized for the Huguenot Flatwater lab, where we shared data and information with other app users. This website is considered to be related to the biosphere because of the focus on animal tracking.
