GPS COLLARS FOR MOOSE TELEMETRY STUDIES: A WORKSHOP
This paper provides outlines of presentation made during a special session devoted to GPS-based telemetry systems at the 32nd North American Moose Conference and Workshop, Banff, Alberta, April 20 - 24, 1996. The intent of this session was to provide an overview of GPS technology and to relate early experiences with GPS-based telemetry systems. Performance of these new systems under both controlled and field situations were discussed. Consideration was given to issues of data management and analysis, including estimation of home range characteristics using existing software packages and integration of GPS location data with remotely sensed digital habitat data in a Geographic Information System. Future directions of GPS-based telemetry systems were also discussed.. This special session demonstrated that GPS-based animal location systems have the potential to set new standards for habitat-resource utilization studies of large animals over the next 5-10 years.
