Reprocess and enrich Argos tracks with contextual environmental & vessel traffic data

Are you a frequent Argos user?
Do you have historical Argos data you want to valorize in publications?

Reprocess your Argos tracks

  • Exploit your rich historical Argos database to reanalyze the behavior of your tagged animals
  • Improve all your Argos trajectories by applying a Kalman smoother filter
  • Retrieve your data in csv and kml formats

All reprocessing requests can be done via your ArgosWeb account. If you no longer have an active account, you can contact our team and we’ll be happy to assist you.
