Automatic classification of accelerometer data using a supervised learning approach.
Data about whereabouts from birds can be gathered using a gps tracker with accelerometer from uva-bits and analysed using this tool. Often, we are not directly interested in the forces measured by the accelerometer. What we actually want to know is whether the bird was sitting, walking, foraging of flying. Assigning a behavior to data measurements is called annotation (or classification). This tool lets you train a model on a small annotated set, and then use the model to automatically annotate a larger dataset.
