Electronic Tagging Geolocation Packages Repository

This site provides a collection of statistical models to estimate position errors, movement model parameters, and most probable positions from tracking data. This project is a joint effort from Pelagic Fisheries Research Program (PFRP) of Joint Institute for Marine & Atmospheric Research, University of Hawaii at Manoa and Large Pelagics Research Center (LPRC) of University of Massachusetts, Amherst.
