Geolocators are capable of measuring and storing data on light levels. Once retrieved, this data can be used to calculate the latitude and longitude using a process known as light-based geolocation.
Our sister company, Lotek, has been building geolocators for many years. Initially developed for fish, they are now being used to investigate behaviour and migration paths of many birds that are too small to carry satellite tags. In addition, Biotrack can now manufacture and supply geolocators designed and field tested by British Antarctic Survey.
Template Fit method, available with our LAT geolocators, is a more advanced way of calculating the locations, providing errors to quickly select the better positions.
