In this module, we will discuss the following concepts:
Knowing how animals react to their environmental is critical in understanding how to manage those species. While animals are forced to make choices to meet their basic needs it is likely that their choices are also influence by dynamic factors such as local weather conditions. Outside of direct observation, it can be difficult to directly connect animal behavior to weather conditions. Within this module we are going to integrate the GPS collar data collected from a cougar with daily weather estimations from Daymet accessed via GEE.This will require us to bring in our own data into GEE, connect the weather values to the point locations, and bring those value added data back out of GEE for further analysis.
