Cybera-managed project aids study of eagle migration

An online interactive system for showcasing and sharing the world's environmental sensor data has unveiled a new tool for tracking eagles. Reported in UToday, the user-friendly interface will aid international researchers who are monitoring the movement of golden eagles as they pass through the Rocky Mountains.

The tool has been created by University of Calgary researchers working on Geospatial Cyberinfrastructure for Environmental Sensing, a former Cybera-managed project. The online system collects international sensor and satellite data and makes them openly available through an easy-to-use map-based system, similar to Google Earth.

To date, the project has collected over one million climatic and geological data records, and is considered one of the most detailed, and user friendly, sensor web data portals in the world.
