Movebank – A free online database of animal tracking data, established to help animal tracking researchers manage, share, protect, analyze, and archive their data. Movebank is an international project that has over a thousand users, including individuals from research and conservation groups around the world. Movebank is coordinated by Dr. Roland Kays (New York State Museum) and Dr. Martin Wikelski (Max Planck Institute for Ornithology and the University of Konstanz).
ICARUS – The International Cooperation for Animal Research Using Space (ICARUS) project was founded in 2002 by an international consortium of scientists who had identified the global lack of knowledge on dispersal and migration of small animals (such as bats, insects, and songbirds). The mission of this project is to establish a remote sensing platform for scientists around the world to track small organisms globally, and to enable observations and experiments over large spatial scales. ICARUS is coordinated by Martin Wikelski and Uschi Müller (Max Planck Institute for Ornithology and the University of Konstanz).
CanMove – The Centre for Animal Movement Research (CAnMove) is a center of excellence for trans-disciplinary research on the causes and consequences of animal movements, funded by a Linnaeus grant from the Swedish Research Council and Lund University and coordinated by Prof. Susanne Åkesson (Lund University, Sweden).
Move-COST–  Move is an action of the COST program (European Cooperation in Science and Technology) aimed at building a network for collaboration that leads to the improvement of methods for knowledge extraction from massive amounts of data about moving objects. Moving object data typically include trajectories of concrete objects (e.g. humans, vehicles, animals, and goods), as well as trajectories of abstract concepts (e.g. spreading diseases). While movement records are presently generated in huge volumes, methods for extracting useful information are still immature, due to fragmentation of research and lack of comprehensiveness from monodisciplinary approaches. Overcoming these limitations calls for COST-like networking.
