Classification of Animal Movement Behavior through Residence in Space and Time

Fig 4

Frequency histograms of RST residuals relative to classical movement metrics (straightness index, residence time, residence distance, and speed,) for points along the grey-headed albatross track (Bird 23059).

(a) Depicts only the ‘true’ behavior states of rest (red), transit (black), and area restricted search (blue) as agreed on by expert classifiers. Bars are colored based on RST classification with transparency so that overlap between distributions is illustrated. (b) Describes the distribution of all points along the track (white) and the ambiguous points where the classifiers did not agree on behavior state assignment (black).
