Exercise 4

Exercise 4 – Spatio-Temporal Mapping 1

Spatial Mapping 1: Observe an individual. Create a spatio-temporal map of that individual’s movements that focuses on the individual’s relationship to the other individuals in the environment. What rules appear to guide how much of a cushion of space the individual keeps around her- or himself under different circumstances (e.g., with different individuals, in different parts of the habitat, or during different activities?)

The trick to this exercise is to focus on the negative space between the bodies you are watching. You want to find a way to quickly note where your individual is each time you are supposed to take data but also to note how close they are to anyone around them.

Whatever you decide, don’t forget to 1) appropriately benchmark your observations across time, 2) stay focused on watching the space between the individual you selected and the others in the habitat, and 3) gather duration data on how long a given buffer of space is maintained whenever you can.
