Our new video describes the results of a two week research visit originally taken in 2011 where Aidan worked with bird ecologists to design and implement visualisation techniques to understand bird behaviour. GPS attached to gulls allowed Aidan and the ecologists to track and visualize the birds' movements through time and space. The work was funded by COST-Move and resulted in a visualization tool that the ecologists continue to use today.
Our new video describes how OD maps work, using historical internal Irish Migration as an example. OD maps are designed for showing flows between places and have some advantages over some other representations. This video explains builds on joint work with Mary Kelly from the University of Ireland, Maynooth showing how new forms of cartography provide insight into historical migration.
