Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) for Movement Ecology

  • Jed Andrew Long (Participant)

    Impact: Practitioner Impact

    Description of impact

    The FOSS I have developed is being utilized both by academic researchers and key stakeholders in wildlife management. It is challenging conventional methods, and also facilitating the use of more advanced techniques for understand wildlife movement ecology.

    The software (and associated methods) I am developing are facilitating best practice for studying a number of different wildlife species. For example, researchers are using my tools to study moose in relation to key infrastructure in Alaska, and snakes in the Caribbean.

    The development of my FOSS tools originated during my PhD funded by NSERC in Canada, and I continue to build on it.

    Who is affected

    Practitioners and professional services through influence on professional standards, guidelines and training and development of resources to enhance professional practice.
