James Cheshire will be talking about his latest book, Where The Animals Go and the importance of designers and researchers to work together to share big data.

This Friday, Cheshire will be talking about his latest book, Where The Animals Go. For thousands of years, tracking animals meant following footprints. Now satellites, drones, camera traps, cellphone networks, apps and accelerometers allow us to see the natural world like never before. We will explore the animal-tracking revolution created by scientists gathering wild data - from seals mapping the sea to baboons making decisions, from birds dodging tornadoes to jaguars taking selfies.
