With our app you can get a good understanding of where the herd is and also how it is moving. A movement indicator shows the direction a collars i tending to move in, and also indicates if there is low movement. Simply zoom in to see the lastest captured positions. This gives an overview of how the herd is moving.
To display even more historical records, simply click on a particular collar. The trail length can be adjusted to any number of weeks and you can click on each such record to see date and time.
You can also export historic positions to a file. The exported data comes in the globally accepted CSV format and can be used in various other applications (Such as the Swedish RenGIS application).
The OnTrack system analyses the herd's usage of the land. Historical GPS positions are summarized over time into a unit called Gracing Days (Betesdygn), which represents how long animals have dwelled in a particular area. These are presented on the map to show land usage for each month. The analyses are accessible right within the OnTrack app. Step between different months to see how the herd's land usage changes month per month - or press the play button for an animation.
Sometimes it can be useful to know if the herd is moving faster or slower in certain areas. In our analysis, a mean value for the collar's speed of movement is calculated and presented for the various areas. By comparing the velocity values this can aid in detecting i. e. disturbances for the animals. Comparing the values over time can further help in understanding if behavior has changed because of outer factors. We have added windpower projects to the map by default, feel free to contact us if you wish to see other environmental factors of interest along with your analysis.
