|Preferred Label||sensor type|
|Definition||The type of sensor with which data were collected. All sensors are associated with a tag id, and tags can contain multiple sensor types. Each event record in Movebank is assigned one sensor type. If values from multiple sensors are reported in a single event, the primary sensor is used. Values are chosen from a controlled list: acceleration = The sensor collects acceleration data; accessory measurements = The sensor collects accessory measurements, such as battery voltage; acoustic telemetry = The sensor transmits an acoustic signal that is detected by receivers to determine location; Argos Doppler shift = The sensor uses Argos Doppler shift to determine location; barometer = The sensor records air or water pressure; bird ring = The animal is identified by a band or ring that has a unique identifier; GPS = The sensor uses GPS to determine location; magnetometer = The sensor records the magnetic field; natural mark = The animal is identified by a unique natural marking; orientation = Quaternion components describing the orientation of the tag are derived from accelerometer and gyroscope measurements; radio transmitter = The sensor transmits a radio signal that is detected by receivers to determine location; solar geolocator = The sensor collects light levels, which are used to determine position (for processed locations); solar geolocator raw = The sensor collects light levels, which are used to determine position (for raw light-level measurements); solar geolocator twilight = The sensor collects light levels, which are used to determine position (for twilights calculated from light-level measurements).
