Data & Maps

Participants in Project Owlnet are producing vast quantities of data.  Some of this information is easy to summarize and present.  Much of these data are complex and proprietary to the banders that are collecting the data.  This section of the web site will grow as we establish more sophisticated ways to summarize data while protecting the publication rights of the banders and researchers who collected the data.

For now we are providing simple summary information, such as maps, that illustrate the continental breath of Project Owlnet.  There are also some aspects of what we are attempting to learn about owl migration, such as the connectivity between breeding areas and migration routes and/or wintering areas that can only be illustrated with data from many separate banders.  The Maps subsection presents information that can easily be shared without jeopardizing the publication rights of individual researchers.
