This dataset contains four comma-delimited files collected to evaluate the utility of GPS biologging tags for studying the spatial ecology of large constricting snakes. The first file contains the dates that five Burmese pythons were deployed for tracking in Everglades National Park, FL. The second file contains the data from each of those five python GPS tags with all of the attempted GPS fixes and their result (success or fail). The third file contains deployment dates and true locations for seven GPS test-platforms deployed in Everglades National Park to assess the effect of habitat on fix success as well as accuracy and precision of the tags in situ. The final file contains the data from each of those seven test-platform GPS tags with all of the attempted GPS fixes and their result, as well as the location the tag recorded.
