Project Overview[edit | edit source]

CatMap

This project built upon the Taranaki Furbabies cat-tracking project. School children tracked their cats with GPS units[1], [2], [3]and analysed where the cats went. CatMap focused on the areas adjacent to native bush to determine cats' preferred habitat

Partners[edit | edit source]

Welbourn School, New Plymouth

Inglewood Primary School

MAIN Trust NZ, Dr Dawn Mills (NP Vet Group), Dr Heidy Kikillus (VUW Cat Tracker NZ)

Information technology:[edit | edit source]

  • i-Naturalist project "What the cat brought in" to record what species the cats caught.
  • QGIS was used to visualise the GPS tracking data:
    • 'Time Manager' was used to show the day/night movements of cats
    • Sentinel-2 satellite imagery was used to define preferred habitats
  • Camtesia Studio recorded the QGIS screen and produced the mp4 videos
