Tracking the prey rather than the predator with GNSS
Volker Janssen
The paper presents an indirect GNSS-based method for the tracking of drop bears to effectively map the animal population, study animal behaviour and enhance conservation efforts. Rather than attaching sensors to the animals themselves, the prey is tracked in order to map the population. A case study demonstrates that this method can effectively estimate the number and spatial distribution of drop bears in the area...

Integrating surveying methodologies to provide specific solutions
Donatella Dominici, Elisa Rosciano, Michail Elaiopoulos
This paper aims to illustrate how the simultaneous use of various instruments can guarantee satisfying results even in apparently complex situations. The integration and the smart use of well-established techniques can meet the requirements of any situation, especially in problematic cases such as post-calamity...
