Title: GPS radio collar 3D performance as influenced by forest structure and topography

Author: Gamo, R. Scott; Rumble, Mark A.; Lindzey, Fred; Stefanich, Matt

Date: 2000

Source: Biotelemetry 15: proceedings of the 15th international symposium on biotelemetry, Juneau, Alaska, USA, May 9-14, 1999. Wageningen, The Netherlands: International Society on Biotelemetry, 2000.

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: Global Positioning System (GPS) telemetry enables biologists to obtain accurate and systematic locations of animals. Vegetation can block signals from satellites to GPS radio collars. Therefore, a vegetation dependent bias to telemetry data may occur which if quantified, could be accounted for. We evaluated the performance of GPS collars in 6 structural stage categories of 3 forest vegetation types to attempt to quantify the relation between GPS locations and forest vegetation.

Keywords: Global Positioning System (GPS), telemetry , forest vegetation, Black Hills National Forest
