Spatial Database For Gps Wildlife Tracking Data

RRP $519.99

This book guides animal ecologists, biologists and wildlife and data managers through a step-by-step procedure to build their own advanced software platforms to manage and process wildlife tracking data. This unique, problem-solving-oriented guide focuses on how to extract the most from GPS animal tracking data, while preventing error propagation and optimizing analysis performance. Based on the open source PostgreSQL/PostGIS spatial database, the software platform will allow researchers and managers to integrate and harmonize GPS tracking data together with animal characteristics, environmental data sets, including remote sensing image time series, and other bio-logged data, such as acceleration data. Moreover, the book shows how the powerful R statistical environment can be integrated into the software platform, either connecting the database with R, or embedding the same tools in the database through the PostgreSQL extension Pl/R. The client/server architecture allows users to remotely connect a number of software applications that can be used as a database front end, including GIS software and WebGIS. Each chapter offers a real-world data management and processing problem that is discussed in its biological context; solutions are proposed and exemplified through ad hoc SQL code, progressively exploring the potential of spatial database functions applied to the respective wildlife tracking case. Finally, wildlife tracking management issues are discussed in the increasingly widespread framework of collaborative science and data sharing. GPS animal telemetry data from a real study, freely available online, are used to demonstrate the proposed examples. This book is also suitable for undergraduate and graduate students, if accompanied by the basics of databases.


Modern Statistical, Systems, And Gpss Simulation

RRP $257.99

Modern Statistical, Systems, and GPSS Simulation, Second Edition introduces the theory and implementation of discrete-event simulation. This text:
establishes a theoretical basis for simulation methodology
provides details of an important simulation language (GPSS - General Purpose Simulation System)
integrates these two elements in a systems simulation case study
Valuable additions to the second edition include coverage of random number generators with astronomic period, new entropy-based tests of uniformity, gamma variate generation, results on the GLD, and variance reduction techniques.
GPSS/PC is an interactive implementation of GPSS for the IBM-PC compatible family of microcomputers. The disk accompanying Modern Statistical, Systems, and GPSS Simulation contains the limited educational version of GPSS/PC with many illustrative examples discussed in the text.


Animal Tracking

RRP $12.99

Providing essential guidance for a myriad of circumstances and skill levels, this virtually indestructible series of pocket guides includes tips and tricks for exploring the outdoors as well as preparing for natural disasters. From studying wildlife and diverse environments to sound advice for hunting and boating enthusiasts, this collection is ideal for the everyday adventurer. Unlike bulky guidebooks, these waterproof, travel-size companions are perfect for navigating the wilderness, built to endure day hikes, fishing expeditions, and camping trips for years to come.

 

Highlighting North America’s most common mammals, this installment identifies their feeding signs, tracks, scats, burrows, dens, bedding areas, and rubbings. A handy field ruler as well as instructions on making casts of tracks are also included.
