E-Track will develop GPS animal tracking and analysis tools for sophisticated behavioural research on wild and domestic animals. The project makes use of the European Geostationary Navigation Overlay Service (EGNOS) that provides higher accuracy locations than in conventional GPS animal tracking. E-Track tags will use EGNOS for enhanced accuracy, combined with fast sampling, sensors and a wide range of tag formats, sizes and remote communication systems. E-Track software will offer powerful analyses of animal behaviour using data with high spatial and temporal resolution, with innovative visualisation methods and an easy to use interface. E-Track hardware and software will be integrated in a modular, end-to-end system. We will test and demonstrate the E-Track system in field studies with mammals and large birds.
