movekit is an open-source software package for the processing and analysis of movement data. It has several selling points, for example

  • Data pre-processing (e.g. data checks, smoothing, duplicate removal, interpolation, …)

  • Feature extraction (e.g. speed, acceleration, heading, distance, environment exploration, outlier detection, …)

  • Group-level analysis (e.g. centroid/medoid computations, polarization, coordination, leadership, clustering, …)

  • Spatial data analysis (Compute Convex hull, voronoi diagram and delaunay triangulation objects)

  • Network analysis with networkX (e.g. analyze network graphs over time, individual nodes, individual edges, …)

  • Various plots (e.g.plots of features, static/animated plots of movement, interactive maps for geo data, …)
