This program animates the acoustic tagging data based on a system of passive listening stations . The animation can include any number of tags. For instance, you may have conducted a study with 5 tagged fish and an array of 10 listening stations (e.g. VR2 hydrophones). This software will allow you to animate the paths of your 5 tagged fish across 10 listening stations simultaneously. This software shows paths in real-time sped up. In other words, the time-line is preserved, but the user has the option to increase the display speed of that time line. In addition to animating the tag data, the figure darkens and lightens based on daylight (an approximation) and gives lunar phase in the top graph. Prior to installing TagTravel you MUST download the (free) Matlab component runtime library and run it once on your machine. Note also that installing new versions of TagTravel will require a new download and installation of the component runtime library. The folder TagTravel_GoogleMaps includes an updated tagtravel.exe that works automatically with Google Maps. Sweet!

updated tag travel software that uses the Google Maps API to generate the map behind the paths automatically. If the map isn't working, disable your firewall temporarily while using the program (the program needs to connect via the internet to download the maps)
