Are animals better at weather forecasting than human beings?
What it does
Study the impact of weather precipitation on animal migration - Kruger buffalo. We extracted data of landcover, migration of buffaloes and precipitation, then used QGIS to visualise them and tried to see the relationship of these information.
How I built it
Challenges I ran into
Extracting netcdf datasets from ECMWF server directly and finding the usage of netcdf files. Using GIS to visualise.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Learned how to use GIS
What I learned
QGIS How to extract data from ECMWF Having fun
What's next for African Animals Migration
Develop more details and consider more attributes that may influence the migration of animals. Analyse the weather and landcover to predict the optimal route of migration and help animals move to prevent from extinction. Use the research on different areas, e.g. tourism, animal protection.
