A pioneering book that uses big data to map the movements of 50 different animals on land, sea and sky, from ants to humpback whales, bats to the great white shark.

About the Author

James Cheshire and Oliver Uberti's complementary skills enable them to produce graphics and book pages that few others can match. As a lecturer at University College London, James applies his cartographic and programming skills to the staggering amount of data that scientists are now collecting. In 2017, he was awarded the Royal Geographical Society's Cuthbert Peek Award in recognition of his work 'advancing geographical knowledge through the use of mappable Big Data'. Oliver has more than a decade of experience visualizing and writing about wildlife research-from 2003 to 2012, he worked in the design department of National Geographic, most recently as Senior Design Editor.
