The analysis of movement and behavior of animals poses many challenges for visualization research. Recent developments in tracking technology have enabled the farm animal industry to track movements of individual animals in stables. Noldus Information Technology develops tooling to analyze such data, see, e.g., http://www.noldus.com/animal-behavior-research/solutions/research-farm-animals/set-research-stables.
The goal of this project is to develop advanced analysis and visualization techniques for movement data, in particular for farm animals.
