What is actave?

actave performs pre-analysis and visualisation of activity and GLS data recorded with animal-borne data loggers.

actave was developed for the analysis of data recorded with BAS/Biotrack GLS data loggers that are equipped with a wet/dry sensor which checks for immersion in salt water every 3 s, and integrates this information over 10 min intervals (Afanasyev 2004).

GLS logger

actave processes raw activity data files generated by the M-Series BASTrack software. Using geographic data from the loggers' GLS component activity patterns will be analysed in a spatial context.

actave produces daily summaries of wet vs dry times, ratios of flight, foraging & resting activities, and temporal distrubtion of foraging activity across night, twilight hours and daytime.
