Organize Sound with Machine Learning
This experiment from Google used machine learning to break bird vocalizations into component parts and then group them into an interactive visualization. Click the question mark in the corner for background on the project.
Where Do Birds Attack?
The CrowTrax project uses crowdsourced data to plot the frequency of crow attacks and other hostile behavior in Vancouver, British Columbia. The personal accounts clearly mark trends in behavior when mapped in this way.
Tracking Animal Movement
These maps from National Geographic demonstrate how advances in data collection are expanding the ways that biologists can study animal behavior.
