Description

An analysis of animal movement which seeks to examine regularity of land use by wild pigs in the southern United States. GPS tracking data measures movement of 29 pigs with home ranges along the Red River South. Using spatial analysis tools, this project demonstrates the constancy by which these animals travel across space, on the basis of speed and frequency.
