For thousands of years, tracking animals meant following footprints. Now satellites, drones, camera traps, cellphone networks, and accelerometers reveal the natural world as never before. Where the Animals Go is the first book to offer a comprehensive, data-driven portrait of how creatures like ants, otters, owls, turtles, and sharks navigate the world. Based on pioneering research by scientists at the forefront of the animal-tracking revolution, James Cheshire and Oliver Uberti's stunning, four-color charts and maps tell fascinating stories of animal behavior. These astonishing infographics explain how warblers detect incoming storms using sonic vibrations, how baboons make decisions, and why storks prefer garbage dumps to wild forage; they follow pythons racing through the Everglades, a lovelorn wolf traversing the Alps, and humpback whales visiting undersea mountains. Where the Animals Go is a triumph of technology, data science, and design, bringing broad perspective and intimate detail to our understanding of the animal kingdom.--Provided by Publisher.… (mer)

This review is from: Where The Animals Go: Tracking Wildlife with Technology in 50 Maps and Graphics (Hardcover)

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme.

I am reviewing the Where The Animals Go: Tracking Wildlife with Technology in 50 Maps and Graphics by [a:James Cheshire|9883933|James Cheshire|https://s.gr-assets.com/assets/nophoto/user/u_50x66-632230dc9882b4352d753eedf9396530.png] and [a:Olive
r Uberti|9883934|Oliver Uberti|https://s.gr-assets.com/assets/nophoto/user/u_50x66-632230dc9882b4352d753eedf9396530.png]. Here are my thoughts:

^^ This book is about a new era, one in which the traces they follow are imprinted not in the earth but in the silicon of computer chips.

^^ Where The Animals Go mixes conservation, wildlife and habitats with the secret lives of animals as their journeys are tracked and mapped with often surprising results. It's loaded with information about the animals and their tracking data.

^^ From the "Elephant Who Texted Help", and "Jaguars Taking Selfies" (believe me, there's some great tales about these) to "The Zebras Migrating Once More", we are provided with a wealth of information involving details of national parks, reserves and wildlife management across the globe.

^^ This hardcover can be dipped into like a coffee table book, but the detail is in the data and this is where it really comes into
play, because the text makes for a fascinating read, alongside the informative maps and pictures. Some of the maps even unfold to make a larger three page spread.

^^ If there was one thing I'd change it would be the cover, considering the information and data inside, the cover looks a bit unappealing and 70s style old-fashioned.

Overall: The information provided within is visually wonderful, with some real 'wow' insights that make this an ideal coffee table book for not only animal lovers but conservationists and conversationalists! ( )

This book is not really the kind of book that should be ready cover to cover. An introductory section is followed by maps, one after the other, showing the movement of one, or a few, or many animals of a particular species. The maps vary in their presentation and are visually quite appealing.
