ABSTRACT: Our research the last year has focused on an initial understanding of the way data is being collected and processed on bird telemetry data sets on USFWS Northeast coastal refuges and how the development of a spatially explicit database framework could work to address better data organization and decision support. Bird telemetry studies especially from radio telemetry require the processing of big data sets and estimating movement locations. A common question coastal refuges face is whether wind developments could pose threats to known bird populations. This a complex question for biologists to answer without an inventory of data and a structured approach to processing multi-dimensional data. Our presentation will explain our big data approach, and modelling for a case study in the Gulf of Maine.
