Scientific article: Chiara, V., & Kim, S.-Y. (2023). AnimalTA: A highly flexible and easy-to-use program for tracking and analysing animal movement in different environments. Methods in Ecology and Evolution, 14, 1699– 1707. https://doi.org/10.1111/2041-210X.14115.
AnimalTA has been thought to be accessible to everyone, even to people without knowledge of coding or in image analyses. The program allows to process of a high number of videos quickly and manages multi-arena tracking. It is adapted to follow the movement of targets in non-uniform environments and with low-quality videos and proposes tools like video editing, corrections of camera tremors, or corrections of changes in lighting.
After the tracking, AnimalTA also allows the user to correct tracking mistakes or to re-run the tracking in a subsample of the video. Targets can be easily identified to facilitate video analyses.
A high number of analyses can be directly performed from within the program with complete control of the parameters and a direct overview of the results these parameters will furnish. The analyses that can be performed include various analyses of the trajectories, like analyses of speed or of distances traveled, but also analyses regarding spatial components like latencies to reach areas defined by the user, distances to a point, etc. Finally, between-targets interactions are also recorded and values like inter-individual distance or the number of contact events can be easily obtained.
