Abstract
O_AMELAND - Eurasian oystercatchers (Haematopus ostralegus, Haematopodidae) breeding on Ameland (the Netherlands) is a bird tracking dataset published by Sovon, the University of Amsterdam and the Research Institute for Nature and Forest (INBO). It contains animal tracking data for the study O_AMELAND using trackers developed by the University of Amsterdam Bird Tracking System (UvA-BiTS, http://www.uva-bits.nl). The study was operational from 2010 to 2013. In total 15 individuals of Eurasian oystercatchers (Haematopus ostralegus) have been tagged as a breeding bird on the Wadden island Ameland (the Netherlands), mainly to study their space use during the breeding season. Data are uploaded from the UvA-BiTS database to Movebank and from there archived on Zenodo (see https://github.com/inbo/bird-tracking). No new data are expected. Data in this package are exported from Movebank study O_AMELAND - Eurasian oystercatchers (Haematopus ostralegus, Haematopodidae) breeding on Ameland (the Netherlands) (Movebank Study ID 1605803389), which can be viewed at https://www.movebank.org/cms/webapp?gwt_fragment=page=studies,path=study1605803389. Fields in the data follow the Movebank Attribute Dictionary (http://vocab.nerc.ac.uk/collection/MVB) and are described in datapackage.json. Files Files are structured as a Frictionless Data Package. You can access all data in R via https://zenodo.org/record/6656937/files/datapackage.json using frictionless. datapackage.json: technical description of the data files. O_AMELAND-reference-data.csv: reference data about the animals, tags and deployments. O_AMELAND-gps-yyyy.csv.gz: GPS data recorded by the tags, grouped by year. O_AMELAND-acceleration-yyyy.csv.gz: acceleration data recorded by the tags, grouped by year.
These data were collected by Sovon and University of Amsterdam (UvA). Funding was provided by NAM and supported by the UvA-BiTS virtual lab on the Dutch national e-infrastructure, built with support of LifeWatch, the Netherlands eScience Center, SURFsara and SURFfoundation. The dataset was published with funding from Stichting NLBIF - Netherlands Biodiversity Information Facility.
