Strong partners – key to success

For decades, we have been working closely with researchers at the Max-Planck-Institute for Animal Behaviour (MPI-AB), research institutions, tag manufacturers, and end users to prepare Movebank’s operations for the challenges of tomorrow.

Firetail is a natural part of this great ecosystem and continues to grow as new challenges arise.

We work together so you can work together. Efficient and at the pulse.

Movebank is an initiative of the Max Planck Institute for Animal Behavior. Access your data immediately after uploading. Firetail integrates the Movebank API and provides visualization, analysis, and annotation for datasets and feeds. With incremental updating, you never load more data than necessary.

E-obs transmitters collect high-resolution GPS and acceleration data. The measurements are characterized by an ever-growing number of additional sensors, including temperature, altitude, spatial orientation (IMU), and speed — an unprecedented level of detail and contextual knowledge for research, animal welfare, and project planning. Firetail natively supports the latest e-obs features. A perfect interplay!

Technosmart devices are designed to provide state-of-the art bio-logging data. High definition sensors provide many challenges, but even more opportunities. We’re glad to work with Technosmart towards a common goal: the best solution for our customers.
