DATA RELEASE - Variable Terrestrial GPS Telemetry Detection Rates: Parts 1 - 7—Data

Here we explore environmental effects on GPS fix acquisition rates across environmental conditions and detection rates for bias correction of terrestrial GPS-derived large mammal habitat use. We also evaluate patterns in missing data that relate to potential animal activities that change the orientation of antennae and characterize home-range probability of GPS detection for four species.
