Launch of The Global Wader Tracking Data Project
IWSG is happy to draw your attention to this new project: The Global Wader Tracking Data Project.
The GWTDP is intended to work as a directory of tracking studies. Details from the field are recorded: which species, sexes, ages; where and when, using a uniform data format across contributing studies. We encourage users to store their data in a repository such as Movebank, and can help with uploading historical data.
The GWTDP is a new, community-led initiative aiming to become a definitive register of all wader/shorebird tracking projects currently underway or completed.
