Technology has transformed the way scientists and researchers track animals around the globe. In their new book, Where The Animals Go: Tracking Wildlife with Technology in 50 Maps and Graphics, designer Oliver Uberti and geographer James Cheshire explore the animal tracking revolution.

Data collected by sophisticated tracking technology like camera traps, satellites, and drones reveals the paths of animal migration. How do ants, owls, otters, sharks, and other animals navigate the planet? And how is climate change and urban development altering their movement?
