Classification of Animal Movement Behavior through Residence in Space and Time

Fig 3

RST analysis of example grey-headed albatross GPS track.

Day and night (shaded) periods compared to (a) normalized residence distance (black) relative to normalized residence time (blue), and (b) residuals of normalized residence distance minus normalized residence time (positive = blue, negative = red; zero = black). (c) GPS track color coded by residuals (black = transit, red = rest, blue = area restricted search). The three movement states identified by RST are illustrated and (d) enlarges a region of the track to demonstrate the classification of three locations into these movement states within the applied radius size. Grey arrows indicate direction of travel. Green star is colony location at Campbell Island, New Zealand.
