Ecoscope is an open-source analysis module for tracking, environmental and conservation data analyses. It provides methods and approaches for: Data I/O (EarthRanger, Google Earth Engine, Landscape Dynamics, MoveBank, Geopandas), Movement Data (Relocations, Trajectories, Home-Ranges, EcoGraph, Recurse, Geofencing, Immobility, Moving Windows, Resampling, Filtering), Visualization (EcoMap, EcoPlot), Environmental analyses (Seasons determination, Remote sensing anomalies), Covariate labeling (Day/Night, Seasonal, GEE Image Collections/Images).
Development & Testing#
Development dependencies are included in environment.yml. You will also need to configure the selenium driver following these instructions (note that this is not needed if running ecoscope within Google Colab as selenium is already configured): https://www.selenium.dev/documentation/webdriver/getting_started/install_drivers/
Please configure code-quality git hooks with:
>>> pre-commit install
