To develop a wild animal (moose, deer) mobility model using accumulated data, to enable better decision making on topics of national economy fields (such as road construction, land-use, etc.)

By analyzing the remote sensing data, we learnt the movement and feeding habits of large herbivores, their favoured locations and factors influencing their behavior.
We placed GPS (Global Positioning System) wildlife tracking collars and GSM (Global System for Mobile communications) system on five large herbivores to monitor their location.
The data analysis was used to model animal movement, feeding habitats and the locations where they preside the most. This information helps the strategic planning of activities that impact the animal’s environment.
