You can now follow the progress of our satellite tagged spoonies by clicking on the map here.
Our IT whizz, Robin Jones, has developed a clever system which downloads data from the Argos data servers every ten minutes. These data are automatically imported into our telemetry database and a message is sent to the tagging team members to alert them of the new fix (we can choose to get e-mails, text messages or WhatsApp messages or all three!). Simultaneously, the tracking map is automatically updated from the database. So any fix on the map is bang up-to-date. It’s amazing!
