Different time intervals reveal different patterns in the data. Viewing the full time extent shows general patterns of frequency and seasonality. Animating the data by the month shows specifically when and where the species was present.
You can control the time period and animation intervals for data shown. Drag the arrows to increase or decrease the interval by month. The time period you select will be updated in below the time slider. The default animation is at a single month interval. You can play and pause the animation, or you can manually move the time slider with the next and previous buttons.
To view the tag data for different species, first choose the taxa group and then the species of interest from the drop-down menu. Hit the play button to view the animation.
You can open this dialog again by clicking the Help button on the time slider.
