Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
Lesser Spotted Eagles were tracked by means of GPS-enhanced satellite telemetry (Microwave Telemetry, Inc., Columbia, MD, USA) during their autumn migration until the end of the year in 2009. Migration data were obtained for 11 juvenile Lesser Spotted Eagles after they were translocated from Latvia to Germany as well as for 8 juveniles and 9 adults native to the German population. The file contains the columns 'Bird' containing the number of the tracking device, 'Origin' showing whether the bird originated from Latvia ('L') or Germany ('GE'), 'Age' indicating whether the bird was tagged as an adult or as a juvenile, and the columns 'Latitude', 'Longitude', 'Datetime'.
